Photo take in Tunapuna (TT): http://picasaweb.google.com/copphotos/WinstonDookeranTUNAPUNA#5468903221603454274
up in the left there's two flag; TT state flag and a vertical V-W-V (about 2:3:2) that must be the Tunapuna civic flag. Seal, great size, in the white part.

Possibly the flag of the Tunapuna-Piarco Regional Corporation?
Wikipedia article is at <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunapuna-Piarco_Regional_Corporation>, but shows no flag, unfortunately.

I would go rather for the Tunapuna-Piarco Regional Corporation, which is the local local government body. Probably the same emblem is online at the official website (on page < http://www.localgov.gov.tt/TUP/tup.htm >, at least). Flag image made of using Jaume’s suggested specs and 1:2 ratio based on the apparent geometry of the flag as shown on the photo.
The emblem is seal-like, round, in green/white monochrome. On a thick green rim the lettering «Tunapuna / Piarco», above, and «Regional Corporation», below, separated by white round bullets and set in bold white sans-serif capitals. Inside the rim, on white background, a map of the region is outlined, containing representations of the Piarco airport (POS/TTPP), a U.W.I. classroom, and a sign reading «Mount Hope».
Please note that a (poorly designed) table of related info online at Wikipedia does have a column header labelled "flag", although its column is empty. This might mean that all 9 Regional Corporations and 5 Municipalities of Trinidad and Tobago either have flags or are expected to have.

New version seems to have been produced for the Ministry of Rural development and Local government.
The flag of Tunapuna-Piarco photographed in 2017 has a much darker shade of green and a different emblem (different font, plain green map with black outline).

Flag is a green-white-green vertical triband with the emblem in the center for Tunapuna-Piarco.
The flag with the same emblem was photographed in 2010.

It can be seen in 2013 here.
New image created to replace ours with a little less blurred emblem and a little darker shade of green.
