According to <>, Pasaje flag is a yellow-red-yellow horizontal triband and charged with the coat of arms. At <> there is a plain flag.
Dov Gutterman, 14 September 2007

The image on is something like a 1:2 triband of a pale yellow over a dark red.
We do, however, have the description: "The flag is three horizontal stripes, the upper and the lower yellow and the middle red."
The description of the flag doesn't mention The design of with the arms at all.
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 3 October 2008

The canton of Pasaje was formed on 1 November 1894. The place is named after the nickname of the Royal Road ("Camino Real"), the Passage ("Pasaje"). Marshal Antonio José de Sucre once said there "Oh! éste es Pasaje de las Nieves!" (This is the Passage of the Snows).
Translated from <>:
"The flag is made of three horizontal stripes, yellow on top and bottom and red in the middle.
Yellow represents the resources provided by ripe fruits, while red represents the ardent blood flowing into the veins of its sons with fervor and love for the homeland."
The coat of arms, seemingly used sometimes on the flag, is described as follows (same source as for the flag):
On a rectangular shield ending in point, two quarters of equal size. The dexter quarter or with a local landscape showing the northeaster mountains and river Jubones running towards the sea in the middle of a plain among crops of cocoa, coffee and bananas. The river is the main issue for the farmers, being both a source of life and a cause of destruction. The sinister quarter purple with a cornucopia filled with the products of the very fertile soil: cocoa, coffee, bananas, sugarcane, oranges and melons. Above the shield a white scroll inscribed with "CANTON PASAJE". Below the shield [not shown on the image, I.S], the date of foundation of the canton, "1 de Noviembre de 1894".
