Origin/meaning

The Holy Virgin's monogram, blue on silver background, represents the Immaculate Conception, under whose title the Parochial Church of Las Piedras gave origin to the town.

The silver stones on a green background represent the boulders scattered thru region in which the municipality is located and from which the name comes.

The Taíno sun is a version of a indigenous carving found in a cavern named "Del Indio" in the Las Piedras region. It symbolizes the original native inhabitants of the area.
