The Flag

Flag of Giron (Azuay prov., Ecuador), with a bit of explanation (in Spanish) at <turismogiron/bandera.htm>.
Jarig Bakker, 9 June 1999

Translated from the site:
"The flag of the [Swiss-like] Canton was created through Municipal By-Law of 11th July 1948 and its blue and white colours represent Ecuatorian Liberalism since Giro'n was one of the first villages to join the official 1895 coup d'etat. The By-Law decreed under Ricardo Torres Rivas' presidency establishes that it [the flag] shall bear the official coat-of-arms in its central part."
Santiago Dotor, 10 June 1999

Giron Canton was established on 26 August 1897.
