Flag of Valdecañas de Tajo

The flag and arms of Valdecañas de Tajo, adopted on 11 March 1997 by the Municipal Council and validated on 16 July 1997 by the Assessing Council of Honors and Distinctions of the Government of Extremadura, are prescribed by an Order issued on 26 September 1997 by the Government of Extremadura and published on 5 November 1997 in the official gazette of Extremadura, No. 129, pp. 7,678-7,679 (text).
The symbols are described as follows:

Flag: Rectangular flag, in proportions 2:3. Composed of three horizontal wavy stripes in proportions 3:4, 1:8 and 1:8, the upper green, the intermediate white and the lower blue. Charged in the center with the municipal coat of arms in full colors.
Coat of arms: Vert two canes or chaussé argent in base wavy azure and argent. The shield surmounted by a Royal crown closed.

The coat of arms form a kind of rebus of the village's name. The green triangle forms the "V" of "Valle" and recalls a valley planted with canes (cañas), while the base represents river Tagus.
The design used by the municipality differs from the one attached to the official Decree; here the waves fill the lower point of the triangle, while in the official drawing, they are superimposed to the triangle.
