[Flag]

Quintanaopio was first mentioned in a document of the San Salvador de Oña monastery dated 1011.

The flag of Quintanaopio, approved on 1 April 2000 by the Village Council, is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 13 July 2000 by the Government of the Province of Burgos, signed on 19 July 2000 by the President, and published on 7 August 2000 in the official gazette of Castilla y León, No. 152, p. 9,635 (text).
The flag is described as follows:

Flag: Quadrangular, in proportions 1:1. White with the full coat of arms of Quintanaopio.

The Royal Academy of History rejected the proposed flag since the coat of arms had not been approved "in compliance with the norms". It is "absolutely unacceptable" not to comply with the minimal norms of the good heraldic tradition. Another flag proposal should be submitted.
[Boletín de la Real Academia de la Historia, 2003, 200, 2: 170]

The coat of arms of Quintanaopio is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 10 February 2000 by the Government of the Province of Burgos, signed on 21 February 2000 by the President, and published on 3 March 2000 in the official gazette of Castilla y León, No. 44, p. 2,479 (text).
The coat of arms is described as follows:

Coat of arms: Per fess, 1. Argent a St. Roch with a dog proper, 2. Azure mounts vert with two brooks issuing to the base wavy azure and argent. The shield surmounted by a Royal Spanish crown.

Río Quintanilla

Río Quintanilla (presentation) is made of the two boroughs of Río and Quintanilla, distant from each other of less than 1 km. Río has kept a medieval tower watching river Vadillo; probably built in the 15th century, the tower (10 m in side, 12 m in height) might have been erected on the remains of a castle dating back to the 8th century. Quintanilla has kept a chapel erected in the 12th century, dedicated to Sts. Emeterio and Celedonio, and decorated with zoomorphic elements.

The flag of Río Quintanilla is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 10 February 2000 by the Government of the Province of Burgos, signed on 21 February 2000 by the President, and published on 3 March 2000 in the official gazette of Castilla y León, No. No. 44, p. 2,479 (text).
The flag, which was validated by the Chronicler of Arms of Castilla y León, is described as follows:

Flag: Castilian, quadrangular, in proportions 1:1. White, quartered by a red cross. In the center is placed the coat of arms of Río Quintanilla.

The coat of arms of Río Quintanilla is prescribed by a Decree adopted on 11 November 1999 by the Government of Province of Burgos, signed on 17 November 1999 by the President, and published on 2 December 1999 in the official gazette of Castilla y León, No. No. 233, p. 11,759 (text).
The coat of arms, which was validated by the Chronicler of Arms of Castilla y León, is described as follows:

Coat of arms: Per fess, 1. Argent a cross plain gules superimposed with a tower or cantoned 1. and 3. with a house gules 2. and 4. with a tree proper fructed or. Grafted in base wavy azure and argent. The shield surmounted with a Royal crown closed.

The Royal Academy of History found the proposed coat of arms excessively complicated, to the prejudice of its legibility and harmonic balance. The grafted base should be suppressed, being incompatible with the cross that covers all the field. Therefore, the tower could be represented with usual proportions, its vertical development being increased. According to the submitted design rather than the incomprehensible description, the arms could be blazoned as "Argent a cross plain gules cantoned with two houses gules and two trees vert and charged with a tower or. The shield surmounted with a Royal Spanish crown."
The proportion of the cross on the flag is not stated. Once more, the Academy recalled that it is inappropriate to call "Castilian" a flag with a square panel, this shape having emerged from an erroneous interpretation of the word cuadra in the Partidas.
