The symbols are described as follows:
Flag: Rectangular panel in proportions 1:2, crossed by a green diagonal stripe in height 1/5 of the flag's height, running from upper hoist to lower fly. In the center is placed a white disk outlined in black charged with a green mount and a white village.
Coat of arms: Argent a mount vert charged with a village argent (made of ten houses arranged in three fesses - 2, 3 and 5) on waves argent and azure in chief an eagle sable crown or langued and membered gules. The shield surmounted by a Royal Spanish crown closed.
The geographical location of the village and the meaning of its name (The Lower) form the main nucleus of the coat of arms. The waves representsthe river, located at the foot of a schematized mountain. The houses represent the white-painted houses of the village, placed in front of a green mountain representing the local agriculture. The historic aspects of the village are shown by the eagle, which recalls Alonso Fernández de Córdoba, aka the Eagle, lord of Suflí at the time of the Kingdom of Córdoba.
