 La Rioja Province (Argentina)
La Rioja became an autonomous province in 1815.
Although the flag of the Province of La Rioja is a modern designed one, it is obviously inspired by the design of the Artigas Flag and the federalist flags used around 1815-1820 in the Río de la Plata area.
It is believed that around 1815 the Artigas Flag was raised in La Rioja to show the support of the province to Artigas federalist ideas and protectorate.

On February 11 in La Rioja, Argentina, some 100 police agents attacked a group of workers from the Cooperativa Unión y Trabajo (Union and Labor Cooperative) and their supporters to prevent them from regaining control of the worker-run clinic from which police had evicted them the previous day.
According to UCR national legislative deputy Julio César Martínez, police attacked many of the 200 protesters with “nightsticks, kicks and punches” and used fire extinguishers against them; at least 10 people were injured, including national deputy Carlos Cirineo, UCR provincial deputy Miguel Medina and Mario Olmedo, president of the UCR’s provincial committee.
Despite a federal court order last December which upheld their right to work at the clinic, provincial police evicted them on February 10 after a provincial court handling the bankruptcy proceedings ordered an inventory of the property.
