Flag of Chitré; the capital of the province of Herrera. Flag approved in January 2000. I made this flag out of a picture of a real flag, so it is not entirely exact in proportions.

The flag is very close to the provincial flag of Herrera, which is an horizontally divided blue-white  3:5 flag. Chitré flag seems also to be 3:5.

The district and city of Chitre is in Herrera province. The province adopted the Chitre colors as provincial colors (without stars). According Flag Report 27 the stars mean the five corregimientos of the district. Exist a variant with the three upper stars in semi-circle. Before this flag (dates unknown), the district has same flag but with three stars (two above one below) because they were only three Corregimientos.

From the image available at <>, located by Javier Blake, the stars seem to be all on the same line and have the same orientation.
