The arms are derived from the arms of the Abella family, who used three bees in a red field. The bee itself is canting (abella in Catalan). Abella de la Conca was founded by Ramón Abella, a knight of King James I, around the year 1000 or 1100 during the Reconquista.

A yellow flag with five thin black horizontal stripes in the central horizontal third of the flag. Colours from the arms, which show a gold bee (Catalan abella) on a black field, as it appears in the city webpage.
