"The colours Yellow and Green of this flag are distributed in horizontal stripes in equal proportion. The yellow means the gold wealth of the region. The green means the fertility of its fields, abundance and territorial extension."
Jairo Alonso Méndez Méndez, 17 November 2007

Variant flag

A variant of the flag of Angostura was displayed during a broadcast of H13N tv news. The flag featured the plain flag with the coat of arms in the middle, as seen in this image: (source:

The official description of the symbols is as follows (translated from the original, in Spanish):

Yellow: stands for the gold found in the region
Green: stands for the fertile grounds, abundance and extension of its territory

Coat of Arms:
The coat of arms displays several elements of the Antioquia people. The economy is represented in coffee, sugar cane, fruits and cattle, which also represent its hardworking people altogether. It also displays the coat of arms of the Eusse familiy, with its most important representative, Beato Mariano de Jesús (colloquially known as "El Beato Padre Marianito". Poetry from Porfirio Barba Jacob, Francisco Jaramillo Medina and others, is also included in the lira around the coat of arms. The cornucopia stands also for the gold found in the region."
