From the Catalan Vexillological Association website (my translation):

County (comarca): Alt Urgell
Meaning: [Armorial banner of the city arms.] Green stands for the municipal woods and meadows. The [black and yellow] chequered field of Urgell stands for the former county to which the municipality belonged. The [white] fess stands for the town's name, la Ribera (the riverside).

Population (1991): 822
Capital: el Pla de Sant Tirs

A flag divided by a horizontal wavy stripe, top green and bottom chequered yellow and black. Thus a banner of the city arms, as it appears in the city webpage.
