The symbols of Aceguá are prescribed by Municipal Law No. 88 promulgated on
15 February 2002.
The logomark is represented by three symbols superimposed on three distances.
I. The foreground features the milestone indicating the Brazil-Uruguay border, in ceramic color (tile color), with two shades.
II. The middle distance represents a green hill, symbolizing Aceguá's hill.
III. The background features a sun, symbolizing municipal progress and development.
The logomark shall be composed of the three symbols, in proportions twice longer than wide, standing on a black horizontal line, beneath the writing "Municipio de Aceguá".
The text shall follow the Futura Md BT typography.
The colors of the logomark are codified on the Pantone 280 scale CV as follows:

Oddly enough, the monument represented on the logomark of Aceguá appears to be white-washed.
