Emblem of Cuzco

I found a coat of arms of Cuzco in the Internet, but everywhere in the city and department is this golden Inca-symbol and the rainbow flag in use, even on official buildings. Only on old monuments I could find this coat of arms. On every modern official building, only the golden Inca symbol is used. I only saw the old arms at the wall of old churches, carved in the stone.

At the boleto turístico, you can find the golden symbol with the rainbow flag like a seal. It is the only time I saw this two symbols connected.
