Symbols of Salinillas de Bureba

The flag and arms of Salinillas de Bureba are prescribed by an Agreement adopted on 27 October 2017 by the Municipal Council, signed on 4 January 2018 by the Mayor, and published on 11 January 2018 in the official gazette of Castilla y León, No. 8, pp. 956-957 No. 155, pp. 33,826-33,827 (text).
The symbols, which are supported by a memoir redacted by the Spanish Vexillological Society dated 20 October 2017 and were validated on 17 November 2017 by the Chronicler of Arms of Castilla y León, are described as follows

Flag: Rectangular panel whose length is 1.5 the width. Divided into three vertical stripes, the central white, of width double of that of the outer stripes, which are purple. In the center of the white stripe shall be placed the municipal coat of arms, in height half the panel's width.
Symbolic: White reflects the first quarter of the coat of arms, and, like it, refers to the name of the municipality as the color of salt (sal). Purple is taken from the flag of the Province of Burgos, to which Salinillas belongs.
Coat of arms: Per fess, 1. Argent three roses gules botony or leaved vert 2 + 1, 2. Gules a castle or port and windows azure. The shield surmounted by a Royal crown closed.
Symbolic: In the first quarter, the field argent alludes to the name of the municipality: Salinillas > sal [salt] > white > argent, while the roses represent the legend of St. Casilda, the patron of the sanctuary that forms the place's landmark. According to the legend, food supplied by the saint to Christian prisoners were transformed into roses when the guardians showed up. The three roses stand for the three villages forming the municipality. The second quarter recalls that Salinillas belonged to the territory of the earlier County of Castile.
