A nice flag photo. The new town flag is a Burundi-like white saltire on red and green background divided diagonally, red on top and bottom, green on hoist and flay; over all a circular seal of approximate diameter of half the flag's height showing local beach landscape, sea fauna, and a green solid outline of the Ambergris Caye (island), all inside a white ring with golden rope (?) edging reading "San Pedro town" above "Ambergris Caye" set green uncial lettering.
The saltire has eight edges (made from two four-edged bends), with the top and bottom triangles taking the whole of the top and bottom edges of the flag, like the Belize Defence Force flag (as shown in photo not in stamp).
It is unfortunate that the curious name of the island where San Pedro town is the major settlement didn't offer inspiration for the colors of the flag: Amber and grey, with some suitable neutral contrast color (maybe black?) would make an original flag. (Later:) Hmmm, interesting idea: Is it a coincidence that the island is named Ambergris and its main settlement namesake saint attributes are two keys, gold and silver? I mean, amber=gold, grey=silver...
While searching for a flag image of the logo, I found this: Showing a triangular pennant hanging vertically, with the national flag pattern streched to have a red stipe along the top (hoist), seal in place for correct reading and relatively long red triangle tip.

Flag day in Belize and local child wears it as skirt. Desacration? Nah, desacration is when dirty politians show fake respect to the national flag(s) - whatever star-eyed innocent children do with a flag it is what a national flag should be about.
