Description

The flag of Pedro Abad was approved by the Municipal Council on 24 October 2007 and submitted on 6 November 2007 to the General Directorate of Local Administration, which confirmed it by Decree on 14 November 2007, published in the Andalusian official gazette (Boletín Oficial de la Junta de Andalucía, BOJA) No. 232 on 26 November 2007.

In the middle the official coat of arms of Pedro Abad.

The symbols should be registered on the Andalusian Register of Local Entities, with their official written description and graphics (as originally submitted, but unfortunately not apprended to the Decree).
