The flag of Köprübaşı is white with the municipality's emblem in the middle. "Belediyesi" means "Municipality".
The emblem of the municipality is canting, Köprübaşı meaning "bridge's head" in Turkish.
Quoting the website of the Köprübaşı Vocational School:
As a result of Demirkopru Dam’s which was constructed on river Gediz, beginning to hold water and water’s leading to the direction of east and leaving the Borlu subdistrict’s lands under water, the people of Borlu settled to the place where Köprübaşı takes place after 1958. The main settlement place has been in the year of 1959. It is know that, at those dates in the place of the iron bridge of today there was a concrete bridge which had two divisions and the name of the district comes from that. Köprübaşı which became municipality in 1968, became a district on 20 May 1990.
