Bright green, the colour of the flag's background, represents the greenness of the fertile fields, which are abundant in our region. The wheat ears, below the emblem, represent the valuable crops of the region; the bovine's head, at the emblem's right, represents cattle- breeding, the main source of income for the inhabitants; the horse's head, at the emblem's left, reflects the tradition of the gauchos. In the middle of the flag, the proper shield of the municipality is placed on a white halo to increase its luminosity and splendour. It represents Del Campillo located in the Córdoba Province, therefore the shape of the shield is the same as for the provincial coat of arms. The background of the shield, with the national colours, identifies Del Campillo as part of Argentina. The shield is crossed by two spears, recalling the Pampas, the first inhabitants of the region, men and women who rambled through the desert at their own will, like all men living in compliance with their best dreams. Over the spears, in the middle, a disk argent; the disk, as the Italian model of shield shape, evokes immigration that transformed the desert into a working force. Argent is a symbol of humility, frankness, purity and integrity, the virtues that were, are, and will be the ideal of the inhabitants. The natives and the immigrants are synthesized in the name of the settlement, Del Campillo. On the field argent, a sun or, considered as a celeste emblem representing aspiration to future, justice, dignity, sovereignty, and purity, emerges from a cropped field, symbolizing agriculture and cattle-breeding. On its side stands a tree representing loyalty and felicity, flanked by a mill, an element characteristic of the landscape representing the domination of nature by man. The landscape is dominated by a tractor, symbol of work and technology.
