Dominating the east end of Plaza de Mayo is Casa Rosada (The Pink House). Casa de Gobierno is the office for the President of Argentina and the executive branch of the federal government. Flying proudly in front is the flag of Argentina. The one white and two pale blue horizontal stripes were designed by General Manuel Belgrano in 1812. Notice the sun in the center. This is the Official Ceremonial Flag (Bandera Oficial de Ceremonia).
