Symbols of La Pesquera

The flag of La Pesquera is prescribed by an Order issued on 3 April 2002 by the Government of Castilla-La Mancha and published on 22 April 2002 in the official gazette of Castilla-La Mancha, No. 49, p. 6,598 (text).
The flag is described as follows:

Flag: Rectangular, in proportions 2:3. The panel's first third, at hoist, diagonally divided, the upper part, white, and the lower part, red; the two other thirds horizontally divided in the middle, the upper half, green, and the lower, blue.

The coat of arms of La Pesquera is prescribed by an Order issued on 3 April 2002 by the Government of Castilla-La Mancha and published on 22 April 2002 in the official gazette of Castilla-La Mancha, No. 49, p. 6,598 (text).
The coat of arms is described as follows:

Coat of arms: Per fess, 1. Vert a mountain goat or, 2. Azure a bridge argent in base a fish of the same. The shield surmounted by a Spanish crown.

The Royal Academy of History rejected the proposed symbols.
The proposed arms feature an excessive number of charges; municipal arms should be distinctive at first sight and not a compendium of all kind of characteristics of the place. The Academy recommended to improve the design by coloring the goat or and the bridge argent to improve contrast from the field. The bridge should be bigger so that it reaches the shield's border, in compliance with traditional representations, while the fish should be smaller. The Academy proposed arms [which were eventually simplified]: "Per fess, 1a. Vert a mountain goat or, 1b. Per bend gules and argent a millstone or, 2. Azure a bridge argent in base a fish of the same. The shield surmounted by a Spanish Royal crown."
The Academy found inappropriate the attempt of reproducing the design of the arms in the proposed flag but arranging the quarters differently and to superimpose them with the coat of arms. The Academy proposed two solutions, either remove the arms from the flag [which was done] or change the design of the field.
