The historian also reports the battle of Achupallas, fought in 1487, which allowed Inca Huayna Cápac to defeat Scyri Caccha XV and to conquer the kingdom of Quito.

The Flag

The flag of Achupallas is horizontally divided white-green with the parish's coat of arms in the center.

Green is a symbol of hope; it also represents lakes Ozogoche, Paila Cocha, Mangan Cocha, Mapaguiña, Pichagua, Yanacocha, Juna Cocga and others, which reflect the beauty of the natural environment. White is a symbol of the purity of the inhabitants and of the national anthem that relates the Achupallas peace song.
