Yellow and Red flag being carried around today?

Hi, just wondering the significance of the red and yellow flag being carried around Puerto Viejo today? I’ve seen 4 within half an hour?

What kind of black/yellow design?

See the "gold black" section here: https:/…List_of_flags_by_color_combination .

We did not see any such flags when staying there...

Have you tried asking locals?

Probably related to some sort of local election.

Red and yelloe are the colours of the Heredia Futbol Club. They are probably playing Limon today.

Not politics.

Geckoeslodge may well be correct given that these are also the colours of PAC (a political party) but funny that the flags would appear today when the do over election is not until Easter Sunday.

There are two possible choices here.

Red and yellow are the colours of the futbol team Herediano.

https:/…C.S._Herediano

They played Saprissa today - so there might have been some fans running around.

Yellow and red are also the colours of the political party PAC Their candidate Carlos Alvarado is one of two in the upcoming presidential run off. (Not to be confused with his opponent Fabricio Alvarado. )

I would side with Canatico and say it was futbol and there were some Herediano fans around.
