Overview

I found the flag of Carolina at pueblos-de-puertorico.com site (defunct); The image at the Lexjuris site is the same, apart from the number of hermins. Description of the flag in Spanish at the Lexjuris site . Carolina is in Bayamon district, a suburb just southeast of San Juan

Carolina: the sable marks in the coat of arms are very profuse. I have seen copies of the flags with the same profusion of marks in the lateral stripes.
Blas Delgado, March 2001

Carolina - Its flag consists of three vertical bands, white the lateral ones and red the central one. The lateral ones, with a width of 7 1 modules each, are seeded with black ermine tails in the heraldic way. In the central band, with a width of 10 modules, appear the sword and crown of the shield, in identical disposition, with the difference that the colors are white and yellow instead of silver and gold. This flag has apparently suffered some changes recently. In two locations within Carolina I have seen the ermine tails to be golden, bigger and therefore less numerous, and the triband seems to be of equal size, although not so sure about this.

Juan Colón De Jesús wrote to the Carolina City Hall and confirmed that the black ermine flag is still the official one. The golden ermine flag should be some kind of variant, but I saw it.
Blas Delgado, 2 September 2001

The "official"  flag flying at the brand new Baseball Park of the Carolina's Giants team has indeed bigger and fewer ermine spots, but black. What I saw was a decolored flag due to the effect of sunlight. The ermine are the same, in rows of three and four, the first row with their heads cut off and the last one without their bases.
