The parish is composed of five boroughs, 8 de Diciembre, 26 de Abril, 12 de Octubre, 10 de Agosto, and 16 de Noviembre, and of two sites, La Palestina and Riveras del Jubones. La Iberia developed on a territory once owned by a family of Spanish origin, therefore its name. The parish of La Iberia was established on 13 April 1988.

The Flag

The flag of La Iberia is horizontally divided blue-white-green, with a yellow triangle placed along the hoist. Blue, a most intense and bright colour, represents majestic and impetuous river Jubones that crosses the parish, irrigating several agricultural areas of El Oro province, La Iberia included.
Blue also represents the vast sky over La Iberia.
White, a most pacific colour, is a symbol of the wide quarries of Jubones, from which are extracted huge amounts of stony material use to revamp the roads all over the province. White also represents peace and purity, as features of the inhabitants of La Iberia.
Green, a beautiful colour, represents the agricultural resources of the parish, first of all the immense plantations of banana and cocoa trees. The yellow triangle is a symbol of the resources of the parish (rivers, agriculture, cattle-breeding). It is also a symbol of the spiritual resources of the inhabitants.
