Canton Pueblo Viejo- The flag has six horizontal stripes in
the colors white and black. The sequence starts with the white
stripe. In the yellow canton is the Coat of Arms of the Cantón
Jens Pattke, 31 December 2009
The symbols of Puebloviejo are prescribed by a Decree adopted on 20 May
1980 by the Canton's Council.
The official flag of the canton shall be composed of three horizontal white stripes and three horizontal green stripes, placed in turn; in the upper left side is placed the canton's coat of arms, in the center of a yellow panel of 1/4 the flag's dimensions. The colors symbolize the purity of mind, the youth and the innumerable and abundant agricultural resources.
The official coat of arms shall be of heraldic shape, divided into three parts.
The first part, in the left half of the shield, features a banana tree in production with small hills and flanked by a road; this symbolizes the resources in bananas and the migrations to the canton.
The second part, in the upper right part, features a river with a mature rice crop on its bank; this symbolizes the munificent rice production and navigation.
The third part, in the lower right part, features fruits and tropical products; this symbolizes agricultural production.
In the upper part of the shield are placed two stars symbolizing the two rural parishes in the canton.
In the lower part of the shield is placed a double yellow, green and white scroll inscribed "7 de Februero de 1846" [7 February 1846], symbolizing the colors of the canton's flag and show the date of establishment of the canton.
