Jamaica is divided into three counties which are divided into
14 parishes as follows:
Cornwall County: Trelawny, Saint James, Hanover, Westmoreland and Saint Elizabeth.
Middlesex County: Saint Mary, Saint Ann, Manchester, Clarendon and Saint Cathrine.
Surrey County: Kingston, Saint Andrew, Saint Thomas and Portland.
There is no information about exisance of subdivisional flags.

How likely is it that the other 13 parishes don’t have a flag? The only cases
of such assymetry are those of countries where only the capital, and maybe
larger/richer subnational entities have a flag. Since Hanover is neither, seems
that there is “hope” for 13 flags to be discovered. It is too soon to assume
that these putative flags are (all?) plain 1:2 with a centered circular seal.

Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation is a municipal body governing the capital
of Jamaica - City of Kingston and surrounding area of Parish of St. Andrew. Its
flag is the municipal crest (coat of arms) on a color background. Which color, I
can't tell since the flag is shown on a b/w photo (again) :<

ksacorp.gov.jm/........limitstart=10 it looks like there is a flag with a
plain green field in KSA corporation town hall, which can be seen here too :
http://jis.gov.jm/special_sections/yearinreview09/yir09-local.html and seems different from the old flag ferreted by Valentin. One can read "...NT ANDR..." in white letters on blue background (on a greeen field, blue circle with white inscription around white disk with the arms?)
