Overview

The Lexjuris site image is not consistent with the text as regards the order of colours and the width of stripes, and this image follows the text. This city of 30,000 inhabitants was founded in 1692 (new municipality in 1970). The red and yellow represent our Spanish heritage, since they belong to the Spanish flag. Green represents the tradition of San Patricio en Loíza [Loi'za]. The three stripes separed by waves [ohoh] represent our geographic profile, characterized by the fact that we are a coastal town, and also have the river with the greatest width and flow in Puerto Rico. The bell-tower shape represents our religious tradition and also serves as a symbol of San Patricio Church as a historical monument.

At first it seems that the flag at pueblos-de-puertorico.com site (defunct) is about the same as the one at Lexjuris site but it does show a quite significant difference: the symbol on the left on the Lexjuris site has two poles bungling in a kind of gate, while on the pueblos-de-Puerto Rico site the poles have been replaced by bells and the gate is miraculously transformed into a bell-tower. That seems to be the 'Iglesia San Patricio'. Loiza is a few km east of San Juan; it was founded 1692; a new municipio was formed 1970. There are 30,000 inh.

Coat of Arms


by Nelson Román, 17 June 2004

From <www.ngw.nl>: "The upper half of the arms shows the local patron saint, St. James on his horse. The wavy bar symbolises the Rio Grande de Loiza river. The crown is a symbol for the local woman chief Luysa, after which the town is named. The bordure shows some flames, symbol of the Holy Spirit, and trefoils, symbol of the other local patron saint, St. Patrick of Ireland."
Nelson Román, 8 July 2004
