Overview

Caguas is the first Municipality to have an official flag for one of its ten Barrios or rural communities. Bairoa was chosen because it is our main Barrio. The flag was designed following the same blueprint as the city flag, but white instead of dark blue. The Bairoa Coat of Arms replaces Caguas Coat of Arms. It reads: "Bairoa, Clear River Water, 1842".

This flag is was with its original white field. It was recently changed to light peach. The shield was designed by Wilma Román Torres based on the history of the Bairoa sector. The symbols and their meanings are as follows:
· 1842 - year of the first document identifying Bairoa as a "Barrio" · Bairoa - means "clear river water"
· Mountains - represents the mountains that surround the valley
· Cemí (Indian idol) - represents our Taíno roots and the fertility of the valley
· Carmelite Shield - represents the arrival at the sector of the Catholic faith on 1869
· River - represents the Bairoa river that gives origin to its name
· Tobacco plant - represents the major produce in the barrio
· Sugar Cane - represents the produce of muscovado sugar and rum of the barrio.
