Jamaica is divided into 14 parishes, which are grouped into three historic
counties that have no administrative relevance.
Hanover (its capital is Lucea) is a parish located on the northwestern tip of the island of Jamaica. It is a part of the county of Cornwall, bordered by St. James in the east, and Westmoreland in the south. With the exception of the capital, it is the smallest parish on the island.
Hanover has a flag which is white with parish seal in the centre of the flag. The seal depicts the Town Hall on a cloudy light blue disc.

How likely is it that the other 13 parishes don't have a flag? The only cases
of such assymetry are those of countries where only the capital, and maybe
larger/richer subnational entities have a flag. Since Hanover is neither, seems
that there is “hope” for 13 flags to be discovered. It is too soon to assume
that these putative flags are (all?) plain 1:2 with a centered circular seal.
Seem that this page was modified: I can only see the title and a side bar with 4 photos and a 10 min. video clip, neither showing any flag.

Here is the parish logo attached. It is small, but I think it would be enough
for our fine giffers. Also, the version attached has a white not blue background.
