The parish of San Roque (987 inhabitants in 2001) is part of Piñas canton (El Oro province).
San Roque, originally known as La Cría, was renamed for its patron saint, St. Roch. When established a parish of Zarma canton in 1939, the village was renamed Ambrosio Maldonado. The parish was transferred in 1941 to newly established Piñas canton; its original name was re-established while the parish of Capiro was created, separating from San Roque.

The Flag

The symbols of San Roque were adopted on 10 September 1965 by the Parish Council and confirmed on 2 February 1967 by the Canton Council. The flag is horizontally divided white-yellow-green. White is a symbol of peace and tranquillity. Yellow is a symbol of the fruit ripeness, the fertility of the soil, and the resources in gold. Green is a symbol of cultivated fields, of the greenness of fertile beaches, and of hope.
