Translated from Municipal
"Yellow represents richness; the main economical activity of the municipality, corn, is the source of the nickname "Corn Capital of Colombia".
White symbolizes peace and harmony of the villagers.
Green represents the mountains, "mecestas" and the green valleys of Mercaderes Cauca."
