About the district

The district of Florentino Ameghino (locally known as Ameghino; 8,276 inhabitants in 2000; 1,825 sq. km) is located in the northeastern part of the Buenos Aires Province, 500 km of La Plata. The district is made of the settlements of Florentino Ameghino proper (capital), Blaquier and El Porvenir.

Florentino Ameghino was founded, as Halsey, on a plot offered by Diego Tetley from his estate "La Chacra" to build a railway station. The day of appearance of the first locomotive, 1 November 1896, is considered as the date of foundation of the settlement. Halsey was renamed Florentino Ameghino in 1913 as a tribute to the famous Argentine palaeontologist Florentino Ameghino (1854-1911). The same year, the struggle for municipal autonomy started. A first achievement was obtained in 1917, when Ameghino became a Municipal Delegation. The district of Florentino Ameghino was established by Provincial Law No. 11071 of 21 March 1991, seceding from General Pinto.

Blaquier was founded on a plot offered by Alberto Blaquier. The day of appearance of the first locomotive, 1 December 1905, is considered as the date of foundation of the settlement. In November 1906, the plans of the new settlement were drafted, under the name of Príncipe di Piemonte, which was quickly replaced by the original name of the railway station.

El Porvenir was founded in 1906 on the plot of the same name offered by Patricio Dowling.

Description of the flag

The flag of the district of Florentino Ameghino, designed by Pr. Teresia Saganias de Wilson, is blue with three silver stars forming a triangle pointing upwards.

Blue is the color of the sky and of the national flag. The single, uniform colour symbolizes the unity characterising the district. The three stars represent the three settlements of Florentino Ameghino proper, Blaquier and Porvenir; their colour evokes "Argentinity".
