When meetings of this plan are made a white flag with the logo of the plan is raised. The logo is formed by two hands, one yellow and one blue. The name of the plan and the two hands stand for the idea of "giving a hand". The position of these hands recall the Uruguayan National Flag. The yellow hand recalls the sun, and the four horizontal fingers of the blue hand recall the blue stripes of the National Flag.

The name of the plan mano con mano (hand with hand) and PLAN DE EMERGENCIA (Emergency Plan) appear below in black letters.
