Translated from municipal web site:
"Blue represents the sky, the abundance of water in the municipality and the ruling political party.
White represents peace enjoyed by our municipality.
Green represents the abundant vegetation and flora in the municipality.
The coffee branch recalls that coffee is the main agricultural product of our economy."
Blue is the traditional colour of the Conservative Party.
