"The Borough Flag The Colours of the Borough Flag are Red, White, Black and Yellow Gold. The Colours of the Flag were taken out of the National Flag since the Borough of Point Fortin is the First Republic Borough in the history of Trinidad and Tobago. The dimension of the Flag shall be in the proportions of (5:3). The Flag will be divided into 1/3 Red, 1/3 White and 1/3 Black, bands on the vertical. On the centre White Bank is superimposed the Yellow gold Emblem or Seal of the Borough. The Red Band must always be nearest to the pole or Flag Staff.
The Meaning of the Flag - The Red represents the Energy of the People and the Industries of the Borough. The White represents the "Purity" of the Borough since the nation achieved Republican status. The Black represents the Oil, the indigenous wealth of the Borough and its potential.   The gold represents the enriched talent of our Burgesses."
Valentin Poposki, 1 April 2006

The text we have states that the flag should have 3:5 proportions (although the image shown at it is 2:3) but clearly a horizontally elongated shape is meant. Attentive reading shows also that the emblem is to be rendered in golden shades on white, unlike the said original image, in red.
It should be noted that the seal on the flag uses a shield on its center, unlike what seems to be the borough logo, as shown the official site at <>, which places a different design (featuring, again, the colors red, white and black) on the seal’s rim and scroll.
