Translated from municipal
"White expresses the human touch of the local people, exercised sincerity and personality, the human values to be found in each family and the feeling of peace and cordiality that is the common denominator of this society.
Green means the crop, cattle and water resources of the territory, the municipality being a big potato producer, cattle being bred in the higlands, and the village being surrounded by rivers and sources.
Black recalls the invaluable resources of the municipality in coal, whose exploitation is the base of local economy and shall give the impetus to the improvement of the life quality of the villagers invoveld in the good use of the benefits; the royalties shall contribute to the constant increase of programs and projects of social wellfare."
Potato represents 64% of the agricultural production of the municipality.
