In 1995 during the 116 anniversary of Sierras Bayas a contest for a local flag was made. The proposal made by the girl Fiorella Nesci was chosen between more than 40 designs. The jury was formed by Mónica Ward y Mabel Mineo from the Plastic Arts School of Olavarría. The flag was presented the following year.
