The Flag

Two flags . A plain triband is from pueblos-de-puertorico.com site (Not available at the moment) .A flag with CoA is at lexjuris site . The scroll reads 'Atenas de Puerto Rico', as indicated by two temples on the CoA. Manati is on the central north coast of Puerto Rico. It was founded in 1739 and there are 39,659 inh.

I found an error on the Manati flag that was correctly pointed out by Mr. Juan Colo'n De Jesu's. My original flag was based on the Lexjuris site (wrong). The triband color order should be white-red-blue with the shield in the center or without it.

The shield in the flag should have a five-turreted mural crown instead of three.

My liaison at Arecibo got an official information from Manatí City Hall who told him that the flag has never been flown and never has existed with the City Shield in the middle.  This was an erroneous interpretation from the LexJuris and the defunct pueblos-de-puerto-rico sites.  Also, the official flag description has the middle red band half the width of the other twobands.

Coat of Arms


by Nelson Román, 17 June 2004

From <www.ngw.nl>: "The first and second quarter show two Greek temple facades. These refer to the 1900-1920s, when Manati was a major centre on Puerto Rico for culture, literature and arts. The town was named the 'Athens of Puerto Rico'. The second and third quarter show two manatees (dolphin-like animals) and are used as a canting element. Although (as in other coastal areas) there are appearances of manatees in the area, the name really derives from the name MANATUABON, given by the long-gone Taino natives to the local river (meaning something like: "river of the high and beautiful flower"). The escutcheon with the flames symbolises the festivities in honor to the Virgin "de la Candelaria", the patron of the city, whose festivities call for the burning of bushes and tree branches."
