Overview

This city of 15,527 inhabitants was founded in 1911. The flag of Jayuya symbolizes a town which prides itself on being the birthplace of the Taino culture and representing hospitality, [traditional] value of the PR people. Jayuya is in central Puerto Rico.
Thanh-Tâm Le, 12 January 1999

Jayuya - The flag has a similar history as the shield. Rectangular, over a red field, a band of green spikes bordered in white horizontally divides the flag. Jayuyan Hilda Che'vere de Carlo sow the first flag in 1975, in her house at the city of Salinas, Puerto Rico. This beautiful flag is symbol of the spirit of a people that pride themselves of being the cradle of the Tai'no culture and to be representatives of hospitality; a value of the Puerto Rican people. The flag and shield were presented for the first time in 1976.

The green line should have 3 angle instead of 4 because it is representative our national mountain that is named (3 Picachos). Also, I would like to inform that the mayor of Jayuya on that year who started the process was Mr. Jose Castro-Gonzalez.
