Overview

The municipality of Quevedo (173,585 inhabitants in 2010, therefore the 10th most populated town in the country) is the capital of Los Rios province.

Quevedo is named for the land surveyor Timoteo Quevedo, who surveyed the area on behalf of its owner, Catalina Estupiñán; the small settlement established there in 1857 to exploit rubber was soon known as Las Tierras de Quevedo.
Quevedo was elevated a rural parish of Pujilí canton on 22 September 1852, to be transferred in 1885 to Latacunga canton. After the establishment of Los Rios province on 6 October 1860, Quevedo was transferred to Vinces canton, to be reincorporated to Pujilí in 1861, and eventually, on 4 February 1869, to Vinces.
Quevedo canton was established on 7 October 1943.

Parishes

Quevedo is divided into 11 parishes: 7 de Octubre, 24 de Mayo, El Guayacán, Nicolás Infante Díaz, San Camilo, San Cristóbal, Quevedo, Venus del Río Quevedo, Viva Alfaro, San Carlos, La Esperanza.

The design of the parish flags was initiated in 2010 by a call of the Mayor of Quevedo to the Parish Councils. On 15 June 2010, Soraya de Quijano, Director of the Municipal Department of Culture, gathered the Presidents of the Parish Councils; it was recommended to involve the schools of each parish in the design of the flag, which would preferentially use the white, yellow and green colors.

7 de Octubre

image by Ivan Sache, 29 December 2020

The flag of 7 de Octubre was designed by the Parish Council led by Ike Macías Álava, using the three colors of the national flag (yellow, blue and red) and the two colors of the canton flag (white and green).

The flag is white with two blue and green diagonal stripes [horizontal on the image] at the top and bottom.
In the center is featured, inscribed in a semi-circle, the logo of Instituto Tecnológico Superior 7 de Octubre and the beautiful wood that surrounds it. The semi-circle is framed by seven stars, in the national colors, representing the parish name.
The parish name is written in white letters beneath the emblem.

24 de Majo

image by Ivan Sache, 29 December 2020

24 de Mayo was established on 19 August 1987. The parish is named for the 24 de Mayo school, founded in 1950 by the municipality in the place called La Loma, the origin of the modern town of Quevedo.

The flag of 24 de Mayo was designed on 18 June 2010 in a meeting held at Colegio Técnico Nacional 24 de Mayo. Nicolás Enríquez Yumbla, President of the Dios Avilés Zarate sector and teacher at the school, conveyed the leaders of the 20 sectors of the parish, but only a representative of Los Ángeles showed up.

The flag is green with an oval emblem and the parish name, written beneath it.
The green and white colors represent the town of Quevedo.
Yellow, blue and red are the national colors.
The torch represents the triumph of the heroes in the battle of Pichincha.
The 20 stars originally intended to represent the parish's sectors were removed from the final version, since new sectors may be established in the future.

The battle of Pichincha, won on 24 May 1822 by the patriot army commanded by General Sucre, was the final step to the liberation of Quito and the provinces under the Quito colonial administration.
The battle was fought on the slopes of the Pichincha volcano, close to the town of Quito.

El Guayacán

The flag, designed by Flora Elva Monserrate Castro, was democratically approved on 29 June 2010 by a Parish Committee.

The flag is white, representing the purity of peace and union of the inhabitants, charged in the center with a guayacán tree alluding to the name of the parish, which is written in green letters beneath the emblem.

Guayacán (Guiacum santum L., holywood) is a tree native to tropical America, which was subsequently planted elsewhere (for instance, in Ecuador).

La Esperanza

The flag was unveiled on 6 August 2010, based on proposals submitted by different schools of the parish.

The flag is horizontally divided yellow-green with an emblem in the center. The companion text, however, describes it as horizontally divided yellow-white-green with a star in each stripe, which seems to be the flag in actual use.

The shield is surmounted by a rising sun. In the upper left quarter, an open book represents the source of knowledge, hold by two hands representing the solidarity values of an united people. The upper right quarter features the abundant fauna and flora, as well as resources in agriculture and cattle-breeding.
The lower quarter features the majestic and sinuous river San Pablo.
The shield is supported by two wheat spikes. Beneath the shield, a scroll is inscribed with the motto "Orden y Progreso" (Order and Progress).

Nicolás Infante Díaz

image by Ivan Sache, 29 December 2020

The flag was approved on 30 June 2010. Manuel Piuri presented four proposals, while Cinthya Álvarez, the parish Beauty Queen, presented one proposal, which was retained with a modified coat of arms.

The flag is horizontally divided dark green-red-white-red-dark green (2:1:6:1:2) with the coat of arms in the center, beneath it the parish name written in black.

The green stripes represent vegetation, on top, the teks separating the parish from the camp of Group of Terrestrial Forces No. 26, on bottom, the trees lining the banks of the river.
The red stripes represent the past struggle of the inhabitants to obtain a territory and their modern struggle for the increase and progress of the parish.
The white stripe represents the harmonious and pacific spirit of the inhabitants.

The coat of arms portrays the parish namesake, Colonel Nicolás Infante Díaz. Beneath the bust, a wooden arch symbolizes the resources in tek. The Spanish motto, "We Believe in God and Struggle for Quevedo", emphasizes the faith and progress of people working hard for the growth of Quevedo, Los Ríos and Ecuador. The other side of the shield features the Playa Grande (Big Beach) river spa, a natural pride and privilege.

Colonel Nicolás Infante Díaz (1847-1885) was appointed by General Eloy Alfaro Supreme Chief of the Radical Liberal Party in Guayaquil, following a coup set up in 1876. Leading the Chapulos Hussar battalion, he fought in different revolutionary episodes and was eventually captured and shot.

The flag was adopted, among different proposals, in a meeting held on 2 November 2010 at the Parish Council.

The flag is white with a blue diagonal stripe running from the lower hoist to the upper fly. In the center is placed a gray cogwheel inscribing industrial tools and a boat placed on a white background.
White represents the purity of the inhabitants.
Blue represents the sky.
The cogwheel and tools represent mechanic industry, while the boat represents the river.

San Carlos

The flag was adopted on 30 June 2010 in a meeting held at the Parish Council. Javier Jiménez, director of Escuela Estenio Burgos Galarza, presented a proposal using the green, yellow and blue color, representing agriculture, wealth and water and fish resources, respectively. Jorge Guzmán, from the Municipal Library, presented a proposal using the same color but white, representing peace, liberty and respect, instead of blue. The design with the blue color was adopted by 7 to 3.

The flag is horizontally divided green-yellow-blue (2:1:1) with a coat of arms in the center, beneath it, the name of the parish in green letters.

San Cristóbal

image by Ivan Sache, 29 December 2020

The flag was unanimously approved in a meeting held on 30 July 2010 at the Parish Council.

The flag is vertically divided green-white-yellow with an emblem in the center, beneath it the parish name in green letters.
The emblem features the "tarabita" (local cable-way), a woman doing the washing in the river and a man disembarking products transported via the river (bananas, yucca, coffee). The Velasco Ibarra bridge is featured in the background.

The Velasco Ibarra bridge, inaugurated on 30 November 1955, was built by the Jones Americana company, on the model of a similar bridge built in Pichincha (Manabi).
The local, urban legend, says that the bridge was built to replace an old wooden toll bridge operated by Camilo Arévalo. When the presidential convoy was asked to pay the toll ("Everyone should pay, the President included), the infuriated José María Velasco turned back and initiated the design of a new bridge.
José María Velasco (1893-1979) became President of Ecuador five times (1934-1935, 1944-1947, 1952-1956, 1960-1961, 1968-1972).

Venus

image by Ivan Sache, 29 December 2020

The flag was selected in a meeting held on 7 July 2010 in Escuela Dr. Carlos Finlay. The flag was adopted by acclamation. The alternative design was similar but with a greeting hand in the center and the motto "La Unión fortalece a la Comunida" (Union Strengthens the Community).

The flag is quartered green-celestial blue-ultramarine blue-yellow by a white cross. In the center is placed a Venus figure surmounted by the motto "Con Unión y Cultura Progresamos" [We Progress Through Union and Culture] in a semi-circular pattern. The parish name is written beneath the figure.

White symbolizes the spiritual purity of the inhabitants.
The upper left, green rectangle represents the immense agricultural resources.
The upper right, celestial blue rectangle represents aspiration to progress by the community.
The lower left, ultramarine blue rectangle represents the rivers and straits crossing the parish.
The lower right, yellow rectangle represents the sun.

The Venus figure, from the Valdivia Milagro-Quevedo culture, represents maternity and puberty. The culture was based on irrigated agriculture practiced on the best soils, therefore the inhabitants committed to work and progress identify themselves with the Valdivia culture.

Anthropomorphic figures characteristic of the Valdivia culture are believed by Carlos Zevallos and Olaf Holm to have been worshiped in fertility cults.

Viva Alfaro

image by Ivan Sache, 29 December 2020

The flag was designed by Margot Aguirre, Ricardo Aguirre and José Rubén Aguirre Pérez, with the economic support of a group of inhabitants of the parish.

The flag is vertically divided black-white-red with a coat of arms in the center, beneath it a black scroll inscribed in white with "2000", the year of foundation of the parish, and the parish name in dark blue letters.

The coat of arms portrays the parish namesake, Eloy Alfaro (1842-1912), leader of the Liberal Revolution (1895-1912), President of Ecuador from 1895 to 1901 and 1906 to 1911.
