The canton was established on 16 April 1864. The flag above is based on the image of the Coat of Arms at Azuay Province Website - Symbols Page, located by Falko Schmidt.
Jens Pattke, 14 August 2003

The symbols of Sigsig were adopted on 10 July 1955.
The flag is composed of a rectangle of three units in length on two units in width, divided into two horizontal stripes of equal dimensions, the upper, or, and the lower, gules. Along the hoist is placed an isosceles triangle vert, whose hypotenuse [base] matches the flag's hoist and whose vertex reaches the stripes' mediatrix.
The staff shall be white with a sash in the national colors attached on top, in length 2/3 of the hoist.

The flag for official events shall be charged in the center with the canton's coat of arms, whose length shall be 1/3 of the flag's hoist. On the green triangle shall be placed stars forming a crown, as symbols of the canton's parishes.
