This city of 28,335 inhabitants was founded on July 22, 1851. As can be expected from the name of the city, the five triangles are a geometrical representation of salt mounds (the design comes from the CoA).

Salinas is on the southcoast of Puerto Rico, 30 km east of Ponce; nickname: Pueblo del Mojo Isleño.

A webmistress from this town of PR attested that the correct flag has the five white triangles in a row at the center of the flag, not toward the base.

This is from site (defunct) and it differs significantly (in form) from the above based on lexjuris site; The description on the Lexjuris site 'isosceles' and 'montículos' (small mountains (hills?) do fit the Lexjuris-flag; the CoA at does have those 'montículos' too.
