About the flag

The flag of Tomé is a white field with the coat of arms. The crest is an embattled castle in the form of a crown, as seen in Castillan and Spanish flags, such as the Second Spanish Republic.

The shield could be described as Per fess, Or a demi-griffin rampant Azure armed and langed Gules above Argent three barrulets wavy of the second. Beneath the shield is the name of the commune on a yellow banner.

I send to you the Dichato's flag, a town in the south of Chile, in the Bio-Bío Region. Dichato belongs to Tomé commune, in the same region. The history of the flag is in this website: http://www.utemprofesores.com/dichato/bandera.html (broken link), and I send pictures about how the Dichato's people use the flag in their houses.

The flag's creator was Andres Ortega Muñoz.

The Dichato website using the flag: www.dichatoaldia.cl, www.bomberosdichato.com/dichato (broken link).

Explanation of the flag of Dichato (in Spanish), by the flag's creator:
La Bandera de Dichato esta basada en la vista que se tiene en el horizonte de la playa dichatina, donde se juntan el cielo, los tres morros, las tranquilas aguas de nuestro mar y la arena de nuestra extensa playa. En nungún momento me base en la bandera de Punta Arenas para la construcción de nuestra bandera, que hice con tanto cariño para mi querido Dichato.
Professor Andrés Ortega, copied from http://www.fotolog.com/dichatocomuna/23290501/

Should the yellow really be that light? It is indeed what is used on http://www.dichatoaldia.cl/bandera.htm, but the photograph and YouTube show a yellow that is dark enough to include the white bird borderless. (I can't check fotolog as it's down at the moment.) Also, I wonder whether the grey line is indeed intended as grey, or rather as a light blue.
