About the flag

"Río Santiago District is one of three districts of the province Condorcanqui, region Amazonas in Peru. It has area of 8,035.28 km² and 12,163 residents."
Source: Wikipedia.

The flag is white with two triangles - on the hoist and on the fly, facing each other and the district coat of arms in the center. The green triangle represents the amazonian territory, the white fields represent peace and integration, and the yellow triangle represents the power of life and willing for work and productivity of the villages of the district. The flag and the coat of arms are presented here.

The same basic design is used in the Amazonas regional flag.

The original description does not match the drawing shown just below it. It is written: "The upper and lower green stripes...". Morevoer, the description of the shield highlights "the scroll with the colours of the flag of Rio Santiago", the scroll being horizontally divided green-white-yellow-green, which would be consistent with the description of the flag but inconsistent with the flag image.
The shield is surmonted by a scroll with the colours of Rio Santiago (green-white-yellow-green), placed over the national flag, symbolizing full loyalty to the Republic of Peru. The shield surmonts another scroll with the colurs of Rio Santiago, flanked on the left by a maize plant and on the right by a rice plant, symbolizing the agricultural resources of the district - as well as the two banana bunches placed in the lower right part of the shield.
The shield is surrounded by a yellow border charged with the black writing "MUNICIPALIDAD" (top), "DISTRITAL" (left), "RIO" (bottom), and "SANTIAGO" (right).The landscaped shield shows a mountainous background with a rising sun, representing the mother deity of the native culture illuminating the Amazonian region. A river with a cataract, flanked on the left by three trees, symbolizes the water and timber resources of Rio Santiago. In the upper right, a big tucan represents and acknowledges the leadership of the communities located in the district.
