Flag

The flag, which was designed by Bogomil Trámpuz Bratina, is bicolor, the upper stripe, yellow, and the lower stripe, green; the two stripes are horizontal, of the same width, 50 cm, and [overall] length, 100 cm.
The yellow stripe represents golden wheat, the canton's source of income, while the green stripe represents the vegetation of the fields
and fertile soils, source of the crop resources.
The flag is charged with four stars representing the parishes. Sucre, as the urban parish [and capital] is represented by the star placed in the center of the yellow stripe. The three stars in the green stripe
represents the three rural parishes: Noboa, Bellavista and Sixto Duran.
