The mace (maša) is a canting charge and the red and blue stripes stand for the red goat (cabra) and the blue chessrook (roc) on the coat-of-arms, both of them also canting for the formerly ruling families of Serrallonga-Cabrenys and Rocabertí. Ratio 2:3. Flag adopted 21st September 1998. Source for image and text: Fluvià 2001. The image in this source shows the mace as grey, rather than black as in the official description.
