Symbols of Berrocal de Salvatierra

The flag and arms of Berrocal de Salvatierra are prescribed by an Agreement adopted on 6 November 2017 by the Municipal Council, signed on 27 November 2017 by the Mayor and published on 4 December 2017 in the official gazette of Castilla y León, No. 232, pp. 50,198-50,199 (text).
The symbols, which are supported by a memoir redacted by Ricardo Gil Turrión and were validated on 5 June 2017 by the Chronicler of Arms of Castilla y León, are described as follows.

Flag: Quadrangular, in proportions 1:1. Blue with a yellow triangle placed along the hoist and reaching the fly, charged with the municipal coat of arms placed from the hoist at 1/8 of the flag's width.
Coat of arms: Spanish shield rounded-off in base. Azure a fess wavy argent in base surmounted by a five-arched bridge or surmounted by a slate heap gray surmounted by the tower of the parish church or. The shield surmounted by a Royal Spanish crown.

The arms feature the village's landmark, the tower of the parish church (photo, photo) erected in 1744 for 12,000 reales, and the bridge over brook Navalcuervo (photo), a tributary of river Alhandiga, most probably of Roman origin.
The rocky heap (berrocal) was white in the first version of the proposed arms; Llorente Maldonado mentions a heap of slate or marble, but white makes the composition much harmonious.
The first version of the proposed flag included five white quartz rocks placed vertically along the fly.
