At <>, the arrangment of the stars is different from Jaume's report.
Dov Gutterman, 15 June 2001

I have 9 stars. Arrangement was slighty changed when a 10th star was added. I dont know the meaning of stars (theres 16 cantons). About the size of the stripes Smith gives 2:2:1:2:2, a Ecuatorian plate 1:1:2:1:1, and Restrepo 2:1:2:1:2. There are contradictory reports because sometimes there is a confusion with cantonal flags of similar name.

J.J. Andersson reported <>. I found two sites with different color shades:
- <> -representing Loja Canton, a simple flag without stars but with the basic colors of Loja, which can be seen at the link provided by Andersson. (see: Variant (?))
- <> -representing darker shade of blue.
I agree that the dark-blue flag has the right shade of colors and beauty to be the real one, but the previous two links uses the basic colors version instead.

Ceremonial Flag

by Jans Patke, 7 November 2002

At <>  there is the flag for official use of the Loja province. It seems that at several administrative units at latinamerica it is usual, that the heads of the unit use the administrative flag with the full Coat of Arms in the flag.
