Flag adopted 31 May 1995
Vertically divided into two, a red hoist showing a yellow patriarchal cross as high as 7/9 of the flag's height and a fly with nine vertical stripes yellow and red. Ratio 2:3.
The flag is thus a banner of the arms. The patriarchal cross is the municipality's traditional emblem, of unknown origin. The yellow-red stripes are the royal flag of Aragon. Flag adopted 31st May 1995. Source for image and text: Fluvià 2001.
