The municipality of Romanos (114 inhabitants in 2009; 1,953 ha) is located 80 km of Zaragoza.

Romanos was separated from the town of Daroca by privilege granted in 1248 by King of Aragon James I the Conqueror (1208-1276; King in 1213). Incorporated into the Community of Daroca, Romanos remained so until 1837, when the communities were superseded by the modern provinces. Placed under the direct rule of the King of Aragon, later the King of Spain, the Community of Daroca kept some level of autonomy and was never placed under any feudal rule.

The flag and arms of Romanos are prescribed by Decree 130/2009, adopted on 21 July 2009 by the Government of Aragon, and published on 3 August 2009 in the Aragon official gazette (Boletín Oficial de Aragón) No. 148. The Decree describes the symbols as follows:

"Rectangular shield with a rounded-off point. Vert, a wall embattled of eight triangle-ending pieces or masoned sable charged with an escutcheon ogival inverted of the Royal Standard of Aragon, surmonted by a church's tower or masoned sable port and windows azure. The shield surmonted by a Royal Crown open. Flag: Yellow panel with proportions 2:3, with a green embattled triangle at hoist, charged with a yellow church's tower with blue port and windows, and three stripes, red, blue and red in the middle.".
The wall recalls the fortress from the 14th century. Romanos was a strategic place during the Christian Reconquest and the War of the Two Peters (Peter of Castile / Peter IV of Aragon; 1356-1375). The church's tower represents the Apostle St. Peter church, built in the 16th century in Gothic Mudéjar style. The tower, was originally erected in the 14th century for military purposes (defense and watch).

The Decree includes colour images of the symbols, which show that the horizontal stripes are of uneven width, a feature not specified in the text.
