Translated from municipal
"The flag of Páez is made of three stripes, whose proportions and distribution are proportional to their significant contributions to unity and equity in our people.
White, in the second stripe, means the purity of our spirit and is the symbol of peace that we want to preserve and transfer to our sons.
The red stripes bordering the central stripe represent the blood in our veins, transferred by our courageous ancestors, example of social and politic organization, clever and valuable.
The two red stripes shelter the white stripe, as thr sum of the intrinsic values of our people and a courageous search for peace."
