Limon Province adopted a flag Limon (first hoisted 21 July
1992). Curiosely the governor of Limon (Mm. Florita Wing Ching
Sandi) answered my request since she was a member of the jury
that selected the design. Before that, two other designs were in
use, but they were unofficials.

Limon used unofficially two different flags before the
adoption of the official one, according comunication from Florita
Wing Ching Sandi, alcaldesa Municipal de Limon, dated 24 August
1998. Mrs Wing Ching was, before to be alcaldesa, member of the
jury that selected the official provincial flag. Provincial fllag
was first hoisted 21 July 1992.

Limon: a sailing ship represents a maritime province, the key
is a connection to the Roman Catholic church (see the Vatican
flag, for example), and the tree would be a local crop - could it
be banana? The wreath is laurel (peace) and coffee.
