The flag is diagonally crossed along the diagonal running from the lower left to the upper right canton, representing Riqueza's growth and evolution.
Golden (yellow) symbolizes resources ["riqueza"], while red symbolizes the force and courage of the immigrants who developed the place.
White is a symbol of peace and harmony that formed the municipality and guided up to now.

The shield's supporters, maize and beans, the main crops in the region, highlight Riqueza as a mostly rural municipality.
In base, the sun enlightens with its golden rays the resources of the municipality, also symbolizing dawn, life, birth and rebirth.
Or symbolizes wealth ["riqueza"]. When the early colonists developed the area, they were dazzled by the resources in trees and called the place Riqueza. So, in base, the tree and the sun allude to the municipality's historical origin.
From the tree, the soil and the sun, emerge the other resources of the municipality (commerce, education, fruit cultivation, crops, agriculture and cattle-breeding), which are the municipality's life and material, social and cultural resources.
