Ribadesella has not adopted its symbols officially. Depending on the manufacturer, flags sometimes bear the coat-of-arms and sometimes don't. The coat-of-arms is also frequently presented with a French (pointed) shield, and the field of the 'sinister' half sometimes appears white and sometimes blue.

Ribera de Arriba

[Ribera de Arriba (Asturias, Spain)] (1984)
by Eduardo Panizo, who also designed the flag; see Introduction

As far as I know Eduardo Panizo designed this flag in 1984, before the new South African flag, and it represents the fact that the town is at the merge of two rivers: the Nalón and the Caudal).

...And before the Tuva flag.

Jaume Ollé, 23 September 1999

Asturian vexillologist Eduardo Panizo sent me an update on the flag and coat-of-arms of Ribera de Arriba, the first Asturian town whose coat-of-arms is approved by the autonomous government of Asturias. He says there are no official colour shades for the flag nor for the arms.
