About Buenos Aires:
Buenos Aires is the biggest city in Argentina and its people value its culture, sports, and gastronomy. People from Buenos Aires are called “porteños”, as the port of Buenos Aires has been and still is the country’s most important one. Porteños are a rare mix. They are loud, warm and very, very attached to family and friends. Argentines tend to make friends almost everywhere they go and take care of those friendships for a lifetime.
The Buenos Aires emblem reflects the diversity of Buenos Aires. It is inspired by the city’s vibrant colours, eclectic culture, iconic architecture and the many neighbourhoods that make up the Argentinian capital. Check out this video about the emblem: https://youtu.be/K04wZ46e0Tc
