Overview

"Lloró is a municipality and town in the Chocó Department, Colombia. It holds the Highest Average Annual Precipitation record measured at 523.6 inches (13,300 mm) which makes it the wettest place in the world. The Spanish verb llorar "to cry" can also be used as a metaphor for rain, and so lloró can mean "It rained". However, this is not the origin of the name; the town is named for Gioró, a pre-Columbian indigenous chief."
Lloró flag is horizontal green over white.
