Translated from municipal
"Approved by Decree No. 006 on 27 February 2002. The author of the flag, child Yasmith Yoleny Gutiérrez Pedraza, describes the flag as made of three colours, as follows:
- Sky blue, symbolizing the Marian characteristic of the village, and also representing the water supplied by our paramounts, rivers, brooks and sources;
- Emerald green, the colour of the trees, plants and our beautiful paramount of Ocetá;
- Golden yellow, representing our richness, past and present, the richness of our people, customs and values owned by each inhabitant of Monguí."
The flag can be guessed on a photograph of the main park, together with the Colombian national flag.
