The flag of Pimampiro is divided into three equal parts of diagonal shape, celestial blue, yellow, and green.
The blue field covers the upper right part, 2/3 of the flag's length and 3/4 of its width. A similar, green triangle covers the lower left part of the flag, leaving a yellow diagonal stripe.
Blue represents the sky, a synonym of majesty and greatness.
Yellow represents the canton's resources and the products of the soil, the fields grown with grain crops.
Green represents the fruitful and productive, beautiful fields.

Pimampiro organized in 2008 the Fifth Inter Cantonal Sportive Games ("Pimampiro 2008"). The mascot of the games, "El Tomatito", is represented "holding in his left hand a flag of the canton of Pimampiro".
The flag is shown as *horizontally* divided blue-yellow- green as seen here.
