First flag of Region PACA, two versions - Images by Olivier Touzeau, 28 September 2017

The first flag of the Region (photo) was made of black and white lines with the pixellized map of the region. A flag made of the the full logo (same map with a different number of lines and with the name of the Region) was possibly a variant seen in a flagmaker's catalogue.
