The flag of Carrillo is horizontally divided yellow-green. The colours of the
flag go together with the natural environment. Green and yellow tangibly
represent the ambient environment, harmony, growth and exuberance that can be
admired on the banks of the rivers and along the seashore at our 27 beaches.
Yellow is a symbol of the agricultural resources, permitted by the solidarity of
the inhabitants. Dark green suggests stability, resistance and peace (olive).
