San Jose didn't adopt a flag yet. The San Jose flag above is not currently in use, it was used for short time some years ago (dates unknown).

There is some information on San José Province, to be found in the cantonal website.
A public contest for the flag of San José Province was prescribed by Decree No. 34 of 9 November 1998 of the Municipal Council. However, Decree No. 36 of 26 April 1999 requires the advice of the State Prosecutor General about the procedure to be followed in the contest. [There is no more detail given, but I understand that the contest was launched by the Municipal Council of San José Canton, "on behalf" of all cantons forming the province but without notifying them. Accordingly, the contest for the San José flag was subsequently organized at the canton's level.]

A simple star - probably to represent the capital, wreath of coffee.
