The flag and arms of Guadahortuna are prescribed by a Decree adopted on 26 July 2002 by the Municipal Council, signed on 21 March 2003 by the Mayor, and published on 19 May 2003 in the official gazette of Andalusia, p. 10,770 (text). The symbols do not appear to have been further approved by the Government of Andalusia.
The symbols are described as follows:
Flag: Rectangular panel, in proportions 2:3, white with a diagonal tricolor stripe, blue-white-blue, running from the upper hoist's angle to the lower fly's angle, in width 1/5 of the panel's width. In the center is placed the coat of arms of the municipality, surmounted by a Royal crown without cross.
Coat of arms: Argent a bend wavy argent and azure cantonned by two holy oaks vert. The shield surmounted by a Royal crown.
The waves represent the town's namesake, river Guadahortuna, whose name means "Fortune River".
