Translated from municipal website: "The flag is of rectangular shape, with the following elements: on a green field symbolizing the territory of the valley of Patía, two blue lateral fesses emerging from the left corners of the flags and converging to the middle of the fly, recalling that the valley of Patía is watered by rivers Patía and Guachicono."
The river, valley and town of Patía are named after the Patía Indians, who were exterminated during the colonial period.
