Symbols of Navahondilla

The flag and arms of Navahondilla are prescribed by a Decree adopted on 3 August 2000 by the Municipal Council, signed on 17 August 2000 by the Mayor, and published on 25 September 2000 in the official gazette of Castilla y León, No. 186, p. 11,823 (text).
The symbols are described as follows:

Flag: Quadrangular flag, green, white and yellow in vertical stripes. In the middle of the flag is placed the municipal coat of arms of Navahondilla.
Coat of arms: Per pale, 1. Gules a castle or a tree argent, 2. Azure a tower or a cow argent. The shield surmounted with a Royal crown.

The Royal Academy of History turned down the proposed arms since they include "a charge sable on a field azure and a charge vert on a field gules", and could, therefore, consider the flag's design only when the coat of arms is amended ( Boletín de la Real Academia de la Historia 199, 3: 450, 2002). I understand that the rejected charges were the tree (vert) and the cow (sable), which seem to have been made argent.
