Translated from municipal web site: "The flag was designed and proposed by the poet Eduardo Vélez Contreras in 1985, and confirmed by Decree No. 021 signed on 23 May 1975. The flag is made of three horizontal stripes. The upper and lower stripes are yellow, which means the potential mining resources and agriculture and cattle-breeding. The red central stripe represents the strength and ardor of the region; the red stripe is charged with two white five-pointed stars, placed 1/3 of the flag length from the hoist and fly, respectively, symbolizing the pacific tribes of Bochalemas and Chinácotas, the origin of our population."
