The flag at pueblos-de-puertorico.com site (defunct) has a has a yellow star with a tail pointing strait downward. The same site has the same image, but with a white star.
The Lexjuris site has the same image, white star with the tail pointing slightly towards the hoist (a strange sight, when you see the Coat of Arms alongside it with the tail pointing strait downwards).

In a green field, in bridge, a village of the XIX century, with six houses and one church, in silver and red: the church is adorned with the Coat of Arms of the order of "del Carmelo"; and in the upper right hand, a silver star. Gold border with five calabash (higüera, Crescentia cujete L.) leaves. To the top; a three tower gold crown. The town this represented by the buildings and the star of the dawn. The shield of the order del Carmelo refers to our Señora del Carmen, matron of the population. The other symbols refer to the last name 'Figueroa" , the border recalls the founder, don José Ramón Figueroa. The crown is a standard of the municipal shelds and stands for the union and solidarity in the defense of its traditions, liberties and comun good.
