The flag of "Escuela Fiscocomisional 'San José'", as shown graphically on the institute's website, is quartered white and blue with the institute's emblem in the middle. The emblem of "Escuela Fiscocomisional 'San José'" is made of an oval shield surmounted by a cross and surrounded by branches tied under the shield. A red scroll bears the name of the institute in white letters. The upper left quarter of the shield is red with three white stars recalling the flag of Loja?). The upper right quarter is yellow with a white open book and a quill (recalling Calvas?). The lower part of the shield shows the same landscape as on the arms of Calvas. The two-peaked mountain is Mount Ahuaca (2,740 m), the home of the viscacha _Lagidium ahuacaense_, found there in 2009 and counting only a few dozen of individuals (Ledesma et al., 2009, Zootaxon 2126, 41-57).
