Most Mexican states do not have an official flag. For these states, a de facto flag is used for civil and state purposes, typically consisting of a white background charged with the state's coat of arms.[1]

At least five states have official flags: Durango, Jalisco, Querétaro, Quintana Roo and Tlaxcala. Except for Jalisco and Tlaxcala, each official flag is simply a white background charged with the state's coat of arms. Tlaxcala's flag was designed by Desiderio Hernández Xochitiotzin in 1981 and was painted in his mural El siglo de oro tlaxcalteca in the Tlaxcala Municipality cabildo before being made the official flag in 2011.[2]

Two states have provisions in their constitutions explicitly declaring that there shall be no official state flag. These states are Baja California[3] and Campeche.[4]

Instead, Article 3 states that the state's coat of arms can be represented in the form of a flag (puede representarse en forma de Bandera) and gives rules on how the coat of arms shall appear when used in that form. The article specifies that the flag shall consist of the coat of arms on a white background, and gives further physical specifications. Chapter 4 (Articles 7 through 18) gives rules regarding the use of the coat of arms when it is in the form of a flag (en su modalidad de Bandera).
