Practice Relating to Rule 58. Improper Use of the White Flag of Truce
Argentina’s Law of War Manual (1969) provides that the improper use of the flag of parlementaires is a breach of good faith. It states, however, that the use said to be “improper” applies only in combat operations.
Argentina’s Law of War Manual (1989) states: “It is prohibited … to deliberately abuse … internationally recognized protective emblems, signs or signals, including the flag of parlementaires.”
