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 pueblos-de-puertorico.com 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.
