Flag adopted 9 December 1992
Red flag with a wavy white stripe as wide as 1/6 of the flag's height and set apart from the bottom by that same dimension. On the canton, a white Maltese cross half as high as the flag and separated from top and hoist by 1/18 [of the flag's heght?].
The flag is almost a banner of the arms (blazoned Gules a fess wavy surmounted by a Maltese cross Argent). The Maltese cross makes reference to the Knights Hospitallers who had jurisdiction over the village, and the wavy stripe makes reference to the Ebro river. Flag adopted 9th December 1992.
