Description

The flag and arms of Adrada de Haza, designed by Friar Valentín de la Cruz, are prescribed by a Decree adopted on 11 April 2006 by the Municipal Council, signed on 12 April 2006 by the Mayor, and published on 4 May 2006 in the official gazette of Castile and Leon, No. 85, p. 8,370. The symbols are described as follows:

The municipal website shows a photo of the flag, which is with proportions 2:3 instead of the prescribed 1:1 (most probably to match the proportions of companion flags); the coat of arms slightly overlaps the upper and lower stripes.
