Translated from municipal web site:
"Celeste blue that synthetizes the sky and the river resources, represented by watercourses such as marshes, brooks and Río Grande de la Magdalena.
Emerald green reflecting the aspiration of the village to consolidate Sabanagrande as a pilot municipality of the Department of Atlántico and of Colombia.
White refelcting peace, a feature of Sabanagrande and its inhabitants, who are hospitable and respect the social and religious values. The seven-pointed sun represents the sun source of the wealth of Sabanagrande. The seven points mean that the sun shines every morning seven days a week.

The sun in the original image has 9 + two 1/2 visible points (which give total of 20 for the whole sun). I suppose they meant seven visible points...
