The flag

The flag of Codo del Pozuzo is green, with a vertical stripe in the Peruvian colour placed near the hoist over an horizontal stripe with the German colours placed near the bottom of the flag, and a native crown with three feathers placed near the intersection of the two stripes.
Green represents the virgin forest covering most of the municipal territory, as well as the aspiration of the colonists who founded the settlement.
The "Cross of Flags" symbolizes the integration of the German colonists who founded the settlement with the local Peruvian inhabitants.
The "Native Crown" symbolizes the native peoples (Cashivos and Catataybos), the beauty of the local fauna - represented by the feathers -, and of the forest flora ("prenda").
