Information in Spanish:
"Su forma es rectangular de tres metros de larga por dos de ancha en proporciones de tres a dos; tres subrectángulos homogéneos; los dos superiores y el inferior derecho; el cuarto igual al subrectángulo pero de diferente color. Sus colores son el verde y el amarillo. El primnero cubre tres subrectángulos por ser esta una región típicamente agrícola y porque simboliza la esperanza de que todo cambiará por via pacífica y racional. El amarillo cubre el subrectángulo inferior izquierdo y significa la riqueza de nuestro suelo poco explotado. La estrella unitaria indica la acción conjunta y a todos por igual. el numero de puntas representa al número de veredas del municipio. Es de color amarillo oro ya que la acción mancomunada es riqueza. Va sobre el subrectángulo derechosuperior y centrada en él".

Translated from municipal web site:
"The flag is of rectangular shape, measurung  3 m in length on 2 m in height in proportions 2:3. It is made of three homogenous subrectangles, the three upper and the lower right; the fourth is similar but of different colour.
The colours are green and yellow. Green, colouring three subrectangles, recalls this is a typical agricultural regions and symbolizes the hope thet everything will change through a pacific and rational way. Yellow in the lower left subrectangle represents the less exploited resources of our soil.
The unitarian star  represents the joint action fair to all; the number of points represents the number of hamlets ("veredas")  of the municipality. Its golden yellow colour states the richness of the municipal action; it is centered on the upper right subrectangle."
In the description, left and right are consistently swapped when compared with the image. This is probably a "heraldic use" of left and right.
