Translated from municipal web site:
"The flag is made of two horizontal stripes, green and white, cut by a golden yellow lozenge, located in the middle of the flag and dividing it in four equal parts representing each a rural hamlet ("vereda"), the lozenge representing the capital of the municipality and being charged wuth a cypress representing consistency and roots of its inhabitants."
The municipal coat of arms, adopted at the same time as the flag, is made of a shield-shaped version of the flag, with a blue border bearing in base two wheat ears. A yellow scroll bearing the name of the municipality on black capital letters is placed under the shield. The border is described as "deep celeste blue", representing albedo that allows to admire the richness under daylight. Wheat is a main crop in the municipality.
