Translated from municipal web site:
"The flag is made of three horizontal stripes. The upper, orange stripes represetns the strength of our people and our natural resources;  the central, white stripe represents prosperity and harmony of our people; the lower, green stripe represents our resources in marshes, flora and fauna."
