The blazon stipulates the shield is yellow or gold, but the flag photos show it to be red. My e-mail to the municipality regarding this issue has remained unanswered until now.

As you notice, arms drawings (including those on the municipal website at clearly show a yellow shield, and a different arrangement of the mount(s), i.e. a triple mount. I would be surprised if all arms and flag images would be in good accordance with the official blazons.

Another version of the flag, this time obviously green-white (not white-green), with a simpler version of the shield.
