Yellow flag with a light blue wavy stripe as wide as 1/6 of the flag's height running diagonally from top hoist to bottom fly, showing two crests. Two green huts, each as high as 1/3 of the flag's height and as wide as 1/6 of the flag's length, centred on two imaginary squares as wide as 1/2 of the flag's height placed on the top hoist and on the bottom fly. Ratio 2:3.
Colours and charges from the arms. The huts (borges) are canting arms and the wavy stripe represents the riverside. Flag adopted 9th October 1998. Source for image and text: Fluvià 2001.
According to the Gran Diccionari de la Llengua Catalana the correct spelling is not borga/borges but borja/borjes and it is "a doorless, stonework hut used as a refuge to keep watch over the vineyard".
