The municipality of Huércal de Almería (13,990 inhabitants in 2008; 2,100 ha), located 5 km north of Almería, is part of the Metropolitan Area of Almería.

Huércal was part of the town of Almería, like several other neighbouring places, in the Moorish period. After the reconquest, the Christian Kings sticked to this administrative division; a Royal Decree signed on 8 December 1501 confirmed Huércal as an "arrabal" (ward) of Almería. The "arrabales" of Almería remained rural villages until the 18th century, when the town started to increase beyond its historic walls. Huércal, located on a main road to Almería, became an independent municipality in the beginning of the 19th century.

The flag of Huércal de Almería was approved by the Municipal Council on 27 March 2007 and submitted on 12 April 2007 to the General Directorate of Local Administration, which confirmed it by Decree on 7 May 2007, published in the Andalusian official gazette (Boletín Oficial de la Junta de Andalucía, BOJA) No. 100 on 22 May 2007.

The relevant parts of the Decree are the following:

Rectangular flag the length one and a half the hoist, divided in three parallel stripes, at hoist the first, white, on 3/10 of the flag length, the second, red, on 1/10 and the third, green, on 6/10. The municipal coat of arms is placed overall, centered over the red stripe.
