Overview

The flag was designed by Lydia Milano Albino and its background color is light peach. Its symbology is as follows:
Blue, green and earthen colors - associated with nature
Sugar Mill - symbolizes the center of the main economic activity
Sugar cane - meant once the worker's sustenance and dedication
River - its waters represent the symbol that gives its name to the barrio, due to the abundance in the zone of bodies of water
Pineapple - makes us remember the origins of our city of Caguas, the city of the Turabo (river), when the Settlement of San Sebastián del Pinal (place of pineapples) was founded in 1750.
