Ciales was founded on June 24, 1820 by Isidro Rodríguez. [edit] Flag The flag is divided into seven unequal stripes described in sequence: yellow, red, yellow, purple, yellow, red, and yellow. [edit] Coat of Arms The coat of arms consists of a gold shield with a lion standing on its rear legs and silverplated nails grasping a silver coiled parchment between its front claws. The lion also shows a red tongue. Above the lion in the superior part of the shield are located three heraldic roses arranged horizontally with red petals and green leaves. A golden crown of three towers rests on the shield. The three towers are united by walls, simulating masonry blocks. The shield is surrounded by a crown of coffee tree branches with their berries, all in natural colors.
