The Flag

The flag of Nandayure, designed by Gerald Fonseca, was adopted on 25 July 2007. Nandayure was the last canton in Guanacaste Province without a flag.
The flag is horizontally divided green-yellow-blue with a coat of arms in the middle. On the photo taken during the flag inauguration, the coat of arms appears to be different of the official coat of arms shown on the cantonal website - which, moreover, shows a drawing of the flag without the coat of arms.
