Communication from departmental governor Hector Manuel Torres Agosto on 11 August 1998:

The department of Jutiapa has a population of 390.458 inhabitants ethnically " ladinos" (i.e. not indians) in its majority, and the main crops are sorghum, tobacco, onion and corn. The climate is dry. An important attraction is the cattle fair. The capital is Jutiapa. It counts with 17 municipalities. It is at 405 m. above sea level.

The coat of arms contains the cornucopia symbolizing Jutiapa as the barn of the East, suppliying Guatemala with most of the grain consumed by the people. The horse and the cow represent the cattle; the books stand for educational and cultural advances. On the background La Cruz hill, the firm guardian of the departamental chief town, with the tower or antenna of a Jutiapa radio station. Behind the hill the clouds, the sky and the sun of Jutiapa, that makes suitable the name of "The Sun City".

This coat of arms is placed on the flag between two laurel branches symbolizing the daily triumphs of the sons of Jutiapa.

The flag is mainly white, showing in its center the coat of arms adapted and adroned, between two laurel branches "
