Patzité is a small municipality in Quiché. A flag does not exist, as told by the mayor and members of the local council; Nevertheless, possibly it was destroyed by a fire which devastated the town offices in 1982.
The name Patzité means “between trees (or wood)” and the badge bears the following symbols:
In the center appears an irregular green field, not really corresponding with the boundaries of the territory, overlapped by the letter “P” for the name, and a hand holding a piece of wood. On both sides are represented local products: on the left hand a cob, a bean and an apple, on the right hand an ear of wheat, a potato and a fig, above the name Patzité and below the department’s name El Quiché. The brown element on the bottom was not identifiable.
