Citta Invicta: L-Isla: This city built by Grandmaster Claude de La Sengle is also locally called L-Isla, referring to Isola Point on which it was built behind Fort St Michael.
Christopher Vella, 15 May 2004

Meaning:
It is the pattern of the coat of arms of the kin of Grand Master Claude de la Sengle, who gave the city its name.
Source: Information was given by a member of local Labour Party. I have not seen the flag, only the coat of arms.

At http://www.my-malta.com/interesting/Senglea_history_JVR.html can be found the arms of Grand Master Claude de la Sengle, as usual quartered of the Malta Order (Gules a cross Argent) and of whatever arms each Grand Master used — La Sengle had Or on a saltire Sable five scallops Argent and this is the usual coat of arms of the Local Council of the Maltese city bearing his name, L-Isla/Sanglea.

At http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~republik/coatofarms.html, however (and perhaps in other sources), the quartered coat of arms is used to represent the L-Isla/Sanglea Local Council.
