Flag

Santa Isabel canton (18,393 inhabitants in 2010; 77,141 ha) is located in the south of Azuay province, in the upper and middle valley of river Jubones.

The flag of Santa Isabel is composed of two horizontal stripes of equal dimensions, green and yellow. Green, placed in the upper part of the flag, is a symbol of soil fertility, of agricultural productivity and of green pastures. Yellow, placed in the lower part of the flag, is a symbol of the canton's resources, of the sunny valley, and of the climate's freshness.

The coat of arms of Santa Isabel includes a shield divided by chains forming a saltire. In the center, a disk with the sun represents the old deities venerated by the early inhabitants. Above are the ruins of the Cañaribamba fortress. In base, a mill wheel and plants of coffee and sugar cane represent the parish of Abdón Calderón. On the left side are represented mountains and river Jubones that crosses the canton's territory. On the right side, wheat is the symbol of the parish of Shaglli.

The shield is surmounted by two branches of olive, symbolizing peace. Beneath the shield, a cornucopia symbolizes wealth as the product of work and of the forces of these noble people.
