"The flag is made of two stripes. One third is of green colour, symbol of hope and aspiration to better days for the canton. The upper part of this stripe is charged with a five-pointed star representing the famous universal figure of our countryfellow Blessed Narcisa de Jesús Martillo Morán. The two other thirds of hite colour, representing the purity and honour of the inhabitants. This stripe is charged with a green ray, with an inner white ray, symbolizing the spiritual courage of Narcisa enlightening our farms and fields."
Blessed Narcisa de Jesús Martillo Morán (1832-1869) helped the poor and healed the ill, and also had prophety skills. In 1955, her body was brought back from Lima to Guayaquil and found uncorrupted. Narcisa was beatified by Pope John Paul II in 1992. More details on "her" website: <www.narcisadejesus.com>.
