The Flag

The flag of Luis Cordero is horizontally divided white- golden yellow-emerald green, charged with a circle formed by 16 red stars. The white stripe is a symbol of peace, harmony and purity. The golden yellow stripe is a symbol of the natural and intellectual resources, fed by the radiating sun of everyday's life. The emerald green stripe is a symbol of hope and of the fecund greenness of the agricultural lands. The stars represent the 16 communities part of the parish; red is a  symbol of the people's ardour and valiance.
