The canton of Piñas was formed on 8 November 1940. The name of the place was coined in 1815-1816 by its founder, Juan de Loayza, after his birth place, Piñas (Spain).
Translated from <>:
"Author: Dr. Alfonso Loayza Jaramillo The flag is made of three equal horizontal stripes, green on top, yellow in the middle and red on the bottom. Green represents the colour of the canton's fields and forests rich in tropical hardwood and the firm roots of the inhabitants in their birth land.
Yellow represents the canton's resources expressed as the taste of the fruits and the skills of the inhabitants. Red symbolizes the ardent blood flowing into the veins of the valorous inhabitants, reverberating into the sky and light. The tricolor indeed means beautiful and courageous like its sons."
