Symbols of Navadijos

The flag and arms of Navadijos are prescribed by a Decree adopted on 29 April 2014 by the Municipal Council (unanimously), signed on 7 May 2014 by the Mayor, and published on 19 May 2014 in the official gazette of the Province of Ávila, No. 93, p. 14 (text).
The flag is not described in the Decree. The coat of arms is described as follows:

Coat of arms: Shield of Spanish type. Per fess, 1. Checky azure and argent, 2. Vert a fountain proper with a single pipe. The whole surmounted with a Spanish Royal crown.
The first quarter refers to the house of Alba, lords of the domain, being the colours of the Álvarez de Toledo. The second quarter alludes to the fountains that are among the main natural resources of the municipality.

A verraco, aka verraco de piedras (lit., "stone boar") is a granite sculpture representing a pig, a boar, a wild boar or a bull, made by the Vettones, a Celtic cattle-herder people (4th-3rd centuries BC).

The symbols, designed by Eduardo Duque Pindado, were inaugurated on 13 September 2014.
The flag is horizontally divided blue-white with the coat of arms in the center.
The fountain represented on the coat of arms is modelled on the fountain located on the main square of the village.
