Overview

This city of 35,369 inhabitants was founded in 1927. The flag uses the colours and stripes ("franjas") of the CoA. The white replaces the silver from the shield. The green represents the colour of the coconut tree. palm leaves surrounding the shield of Cataño. Visually speaking, this is used to distinguish our flag from the Greek and Uruguayan ones. The flag of Cataño was officially adopted by a resolution of the Honorable Municipal Assembly of Cataño in an ordinary session under the presidence of Hon. Alcalde Don José Alvarez Brunet on September 5, 1974.

Cataño - Its flag reproduces the colors and stripes of its shield. It has the same nine horizontal stripes as the shield: four blue stripes and five white stripes (substituting the silver color). A white band traverses diagonally the drape in all its extension, from the upper hoist to the lower fly. This band is also divided in nine alternating horizontal stripes (their widths equal to the other stripes), five green and four white. Green represents the green color of the coconut palms that surrounded the shield. At the same time, this green band was used to distinguish our flag from the flags of Greece and Uruguay. The flag was officially adopted by the City Council under the incumbency of Hon. José Alvarez Brunet in 5 September 1974.
