Translated from municipal web site:
"The colours shown on our flag are white and green. White represents peace [...] while green represents hope and our cultivated fields."  
"The coat of arms was selected in a competition won by Gustavo Devoz Anillo; it represents a native, symbolizing our indigenous past, depicted in the montainous area, emphasizing that our municipality is located in the mountains."
