Here is translation from the site:

"[It] was adopted by the agreement no. 043 of February 1974. The white stands for freedom, purity, independence. Red [stands] for valour, courage, strength, love for the fatherland and particularly the blood shed by the sons of the city in the independence wars. It is compulsory to raise it the 8th September, 11th November, 6th December (day of Love for Rionegro [sic]) and on the national holidays."
