Overview

I was in contact with the provincial authorities of Panama in 2003. Bocas del Toro has a flag: for sport events. Green over yellow used also in the commemoration of the centennial of the province on 16 November 2003.
At time I write them,  there's no official flag but later (unknown date) is possible that a diagonal divided flag of Yellow/green, was adopted, with five white stars in semicircle in centre and a letter B in black. I don't have any confirmation of this flag.

Province of Bocas del Toro is located in westernmost part of Panama, just next to Costa Rican border. Its flag is divided diagonally, the upper right part is yellow, and lower left is green. There is a large letter B in the center and three white stars are placed over the letter representing the 3 districts of the province. Stars and letter are outlined with thin black lines. Designer of the flag and coat of arms is Alberto Espinosa, and flag was created in 1987, coat of arms  was designed in 2011.
