San Jose didn't adopt a flag yet. The San Jose flag above is not currently in use, it was used for short time some years ago (dates unknown).
Jaume Olle', 27 January 2001 and 15 June 2003

In the newspaper "Al Diá", 13 November 2005, Mónica Umaña D. reports that San José is not very happy to be a canton (municipality) without anthem and flag, and would like to adopt such symbols this year. The winners of the contest shall be awarded  750,000 colóns. Hand or computer-drawn proposals are eligible. They should be presented on colour paper or CD, with dimensions 22 x 14 cm. The jury will assess creativity and originality, message and meaning, and agreement with the motto of the shield of the municipality and its status of capital of the state. The deadline for the submission of proposals is 23 December 2005.
