Overview

Translated from <www.gobernacionguayas.gov.ec> (defunct):
"Green represents the exuberant vegetation of our environment. White represents purity, virtue and nobleness of the Naranjito wife. Orange represents the natural colour of the orange fruit after which the canton was named."
So it is green-white-orange....but how are those arranged?
The place was indeed rich in mountain orange trees and "achotillos" (the fruit of the Amazonian tree Caryocar amygdaliferum Mutis. rather than rambutan, Nephelium lappaceum L.), used for long as a source of oranges by the inhabitants.

I believe that it must be horizontal. When arrangement is not explained, it is suposed to be in most comon form. But if we don't have other sources, we can't be sure.

I created a new image with orange which follows the given meaning: canting flag and exactly three identical stripes.
