The Flag

The flag of Chicaña is green with diagonal descending stripes, from top to bottom, red, blue, white and coffee brown, each charged with a yellow star.
Green covers most of the flag, recalling that Chicaña is rich in vegetation and agricultural production. Green is a also the symbol of the aspiration of the inhabitants in a great and prosperous parish. Coffee brown is a symbol of constancy, humility and confidence. It is also the distinctive colour of the local caves, for instance the Bear's Cave, a main tourist's spot in the region. White is a symbol of purity, surpassing and unity. Blue is a symbol of intelligence, stability and significance. Red is a symbol of power and prosperity. The stars represent aspiration to a better future and the four ethnic groups that constitute the population of the parish.
