Flag adopted 26 April 2000
White flag with a formy red cross throughout, its arms as wide as 1/6 of the flag's height, endings as wide as 3/10 of the flag's height, on the canton a black two-towered castle with white gate and windows, as high and long as 5/18 and 5/27 of the flag's height and length, respectively. Ratio 2:3.
The flag is almost a banner of the arms (blazoned Argent a cross formy Gules over all a castle with two towers Sable gate and windows pierced). The cross is that of the Templar knights, former lords of the village, and the two-towered castle (in Catalan heraldry a domus or house) is the Templars' house in the municipality and is also canting (house = mesó). Flag adopted 26th April 2000. Source for image and text: Fluvià 2001. The image in this source does not follow strictly the dimensions of the official description.
