About the flag

At the official website, you can see a flag behind the mayor, light blue with what looks like the top of the coat-of-arms. No clue about the presence or not of letters on the flag. We may suppose or hope not, since Iquique is already written on the shield. From this image I concluded Iquique has a flag, although it is hard to tell if its accurate enough.

The photograph online at https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/be/Universidad_Arturo_Prat_de_Iquique.jpg shows two flags flying atop a building at Arturo Prat University in Iquique. The flag on the right appears to be the flag of Iquique commune, showing the municipal coat of arms at the cente r of a white cross on a light blue field. The dark flag on the left, I honestly have no idea what that one is. This photograph appears to confirm the graphic that Wikimedia user B1mbo posted to that site on 16 April 2009 (see https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bandera_de_Iquique.svg).

About flag of Iquique I'm not sure. My correspondent in Chile, Francisco Labra, is from Santiago; he was in Iquique some time ago and see a light blue flag with arms and a white standard with arms. No proof of any official change is located until now. In March 2018, the alcalde of the city was using still the light blue (or white) flag. See: http://www.tuverdad.cl/2018/03/concejo-municipal-aprueba-participacion-ediles-asociacion-nacional-ciudades-puerto/.

Then I suspect that the flag in the university it don't must be from Iquique City.

I could not find any other example online of the flag with a white cross for the municipality of Iquique.

I found several examples ot a plain light blue flag with the coat of arms and with the text "Ilustre Municipalidad de Iquique." The coat of arms on the flags is not the same as the one drawn on Wikipedia but is the official drawing of the municipal logotype (from http://www.municipioiquique.cl/estatutos-tipo/).

Three variants for the municipal flag:
From what we find online we may conclude that:
  • the official flag of Iquique is plain light blue with the coat of arms in the center and the name of the municipality. It has been observed only in official use with the mayor and the municipality.
  • a variant with a white cross has been spotted on the university building. Maybe this design has been prescribed for other uses.
