The flag was designed by Carlos I. Fernández Velázquez and its background color is "seafoam", a kind of light turquoise or blue green. Six sectors make up the barrio and are represented in its symbology:
· Bees - stands for Las Abejas sector, where many beehives could once be found
· Pana fruit - stands for Los Panes sector, a very abundant produce
· Mango tree - stands for La Jurado or El Mangó sector. Jurado was the last name of the first inhabitants; a mango tree has been for many generations at the barrio entrance
· House - stands for Luis Munoz Grillo sector, who donated his house for the still operating school
· Pineapples - stands for Las Pinas sector, which also was once a major produce
· Crossroad - stands for Las Cruces sector that divides the road to Caguas, Cayey and Cidra municipalities
