Translated from municipal
"The flag is divided in two equal horizontal stripes, green on top and red on bottom. There is a white equilateral triangle placed along the hoist.
Green means the resources of the fields and the hope the town will live.
Red means the blood shed by the sons of the town who faught in the emancipation epos. White means the vigor and whiteness of the spirit of the mothers preparing in their homes a great and free homeland."
