According to a letter received from the mayor of the City of Yauco, Puerto Rico on April 18, 2001, the correct and actual Flag of this Municipality consist of two horizontal bands with the Coat-of-Arms centered in the middle of the flag. The superior band is black and simbolises the color of the coffee. The inferior yellow band simbolises the color of the Sugar Cane. Yauco is known as the "City of the Coffee" (La Ciudad del Cafe).
Juan Colon de Jesus, 28 April 2001

The town of Yauco was named "city" on 1 January 2004, by the federal government after a request by the PR Legislature and the PR Institute of Culture. Its new Coat of Arms should have a five-towered mural crown. Because its flag has the shield in a center position, it will also change accordingly.
