PUCESD is Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Ecuador - Seat of Santo Domingo de los Colorados, that is the Faculty of the Pontifical Catholic University of Ecuador in Santo Domingo de los Colorados. The PUCESD was created upon request by Mgr Emilio Lorenzo Stehle, who already created in 1991 an Instituto Superior de Pedagogia. The PUCESD was inaugurated on 6 April 1998.


The flag of the PUCESD is white with the emblem of the University placed in the middle. The picture shown on the PUCESD website seems to be a close-up of the emblem, therefore I have drawn the flag with 1:2 proportion, like the national flag of Ecuador. White stands for purity, whereas the emblem shows the union with the principal seat of the university in Quito. It is similar to the emblem of the Quito seat except the motto.
The emblem of the PUCESD includes five elements:
- a yellow cross
- a green map of south America
- the PUCESD motto in light blue
- the earth
- the name of the University and seat in blue, around the emblem.
Santo Domingo de los Colorados is the capital city of a canton located in the province of Pichincha.
The motto of the PUCESD is: La verdad os hara libres.
