The flag of Guachapala is composed of a rectangle of 1 meter in length on 50 centimeters in width, divided into two equal parts. The upper part is light yellow, representing the abundance of crops grown on the territory, while the lower part is alfalfa green, representing the diverse vegetation found in fields. At hoist is a celestial blue triangle, symbolizing the color of the sky, bordered by an electric blue stripe and charged in the center by a white six-pointed star representing the union of God and mankind.
