The flag is approx. 3:5 (a ratio shared by many, if not all, El Salvador subnational flags), light blue and white. A central light blue panel is surrounded by four vertical stripes on either side, alternating white and light blue, each as wide as 1/8th of the flag’s height; on the central panel a white rectangle charged with the coat of arms, its width 5/12ths of the flag’s height and its
height approx. 3/5ths of the same. Overall specs are therefore 3:5 = 24:(3+3+3+3+16+3+3+3+3) = (24+72+24):(15+15+15+15+15+50+15+15+15+15+15).

San Alejo is Castillian for the Catholic minor deity known in English as Saint Alexis [].
