The colors of the flag of El Chaco are celestial blue, white and green, with
the following characteristics:
a) Rectangular, with dimensions 1.15 m in width and 1.80 m in length, divided into two equal horizontal stripes, celestial blue and green.
b) A white triangle covers the left part, whose vertex reaches 1/3 of the flag's length and the half of its width.
c) The triangle charged with a sun whose longer points represent the parish and the lower shine and provide natural life.
d) Celestial blue means the power of the celestial vault and the several rivers that water the canton.
e) Green means the generosity of agriculture and cattle-breeding.
f) White is a symbol of the inhabitants' peace, joy and force, and of the abundant milk production that generates economical welfare.
