No details are provided either on the flag or the coat of
arms. The shield has a red-white-green border. The scroll on the
upper right part of the shields bears, in black characters, the
date "17 de Septiembre 1897", the official date of the
foundation of the settlement by General Manuel Tejada Sānchez,
who gave his name to the village.
Originally a "corregimiento" of Caloto, Puerto Tejada became a municipality in 1912. The white scroll below the shield bears the name of the municipality, in black letters. "Departemento del Cauca" is written, in black letters, below the scroll.
