The flag of El Paso is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 23 March 1994 by the Government of the Canary Islands and published on 27 April 1994 in the official gazette of the Canary Islands, No. 52, p. 2,463 (text). The original proposal was amended according to the recommendations made by the Heraldry Commission of the Autonomous Community of Canary Islands.
The flag is described as follows:

Flag: Rectangular flag one and half longer than wide, divided in three equal horizontal stripes, white, green and black. In the middle of the panel is placed the coat of arms.

According to José Manuel Erbez (Banderas y escudos de Canarias, 2007; website), the colours and their arrangement recall the municipal landscape. White represents mist coming down from the peaks to the valley, green represents the fields and the mountains, and black represents volcanic lava.

The coat of arms of El Paso is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 23 March 1994 by the Government of the Canary Islands and published on 27 April 1994 in the official gazette of the Canary Islands, No. 52, p. 2,464 (text). The coat of arms was approved by the Heraldry Commission of the Autonomous Community of Canary Islands.
The coat of arms is described as follows:

Coat of arms: Per pale, 1. Gules (red) the Idafe monolith proper, 2. Or a pine vert (green) the trunk proper in base a brook azure (blue). Grafted in base azure (blue) a Latin cross argent. The shield surmounted with a Royal crown closed.

According to José Manuel Erbez (Banderas y escudos de Canarias, 2007; website), The 1st quarter features the Idafe monolith, a natural monument located in Taburiente caldera, once a place of worhsipping of the aboriginal god Abora. The 2nd quarter features the Virgin's Pine, in the trunk of which a statue of the Virgin was found. The Pine's Virgin has been since then the patron saint of the municipality. The brook symbolizes the numerous sources that gushed forth in Taburiente caldera and water the Aridane valley. The base shows a cross alluding to the festival of the Holy Cross, which is celebrated on 3 May, the day when the Castilian conquest of La Palma was finished.
