The flag is a banner of the arms (blazoned Quarterly per saltire: 1 and 4 Azure five plates crosswise, 2 and 3 Or four pallets Gules). The plates are a traditional local symbol of unknown origin, the yellow-red stripes are a reminder of the jurisdiction of the Kings of Aragon. Flag adopted 23rd September 1999.
