Overview

This city of 28,335 inhabitants was founded on July 22, 1851. As can be expected from the name of the city, the five triangles are a geometrical representation of salt mounds (the design comes from the Coat of Arms).
Thanh-Tâm Le, 12 January 1999

Salinas is on the southcoast of Puerto Rico, 30 km east of Ponce; nickname: Pueblo del Mojo Isleño.

A webmistress from this town of PR attested that the correct flag has the five white triangles in a row at the center of the flag, not toward the base.

This is from pueblos-de-puertorico.com site (defunct) and it differs significantly (in form) from the above based on lexjuris site; The description on the Lexjuris site 'isosceles' and 'montículos' (small mountains (hills?) do fit the Lexjuris-flag; the Coat of Arms at does have those 'montículos' too.

Coat of Arms


by Nelson Román, 30 July 2004

Salinas was founded in 1851. The name is dereived from its great and abundant knolls of salt in its coasts. For the shield the the traditional colors of the town were chosen; green and silver. The salt knolls indicate in graphical form the name of the town: Salinas. The fish refer to the fishing. The sugar cane leaves that surround the shield, symbolize the sugar cane plantations. The shield is a symbolic way of indicating the occupations and industries, including salt extraction and fishing, that have been main factors in the origin and development of the population. The three tower crown is a symbol granted to all the towns founded during the Spanish domination..
