Symbols of Marugán

The flag and arms of Marugán are prescribed by a Decree adopted on 28 April 1998 by the Segovia Provincial Government, signed on 8 May 1998 by the President of the Government, and published on 27 May 1998 in the official gazette of Castilla y León, No. 98 (text).
The symbols are described as follows:

Flag: Quadrangular flag, with proportions 1:1, horizontally divided blue, yellow and blue. In the middle of the flag is placed the municipal coat of arms in full colors.
Coat of arms: Per pale, 1a. Vert an abbot's crozier or per pale, 1b. Azure an Alfonso VII's Mozarabic cross proper, 2. Gules a two-staged aqueduct masoned sable over ten rocks argent. The shield surmounted with a Royal Spanish crown.

The Royal Academy of History rejected the use in municipal heraldry of non traditional elements such as the plain bordure [not mentioned in the Decree, therefore probably dropped] or historically spurious, such as the "Mozarabic cross". The proposed flag is acceptable, provided the arms are modified as recommended (Boletín de la Real Academia de la Historia, 2000, 197, 1: 175).
