Translated from municipal web site: "Author: Donelis Cabarcas Avila. [The flag] is made of three vertical stripes placed in the following order: Green [symbolizes] faith and hope, the mountains that surrounds our municiaplity andthe agricultural resources. White symbolizes peace, equity and transparency. Blue symbolizes the magnificence of Reservoir Guájaro that waters our territory and the immensity of our blue sky."
Reservoir Guájaro ("Embalse del Guájaro") covers a great part (16,000 ha) of the flood plains of the River Magdalena watershed. It is used both for the production of electricity and fishing.
