This city of 17,188 inhabitants was founded in 1838. The flag derives its symbolism, design and colours from the Coat of Arms. In particular, the cross refers to the name of Don Luis de la Cruz, who founded the town.

The flag at site (defunct) looks a copy of the flag Thanh-Tâm Le' giffed from the Lexjuris site. The only difference is in the cross-end; The 'Lexjuris' - cross can be labeled 'Cross fleuretty' while the cross at the 'Pueblos de Puerto Rico' site has crowns at its ends. (or something like that) - from the description at the lexjuris-site I tend to conclude that the cross-ends are like 'fleur-de-lis', so the Lexjuris-cross should be the correct rendition.

The flag derives its design and colors from the Coat of Arms and keeps its symbolism. It has two vertical stripes of same width, red to the hoist and green to the fly. The first has a superimposed yellow fleuretted cross.
