"Colegio de Occidente", located in Tuluá,
Department of Valle, was recognized on 8 September 1995 by the
Department of Valle (Decree No. 209). The merging of
the institute with "Centro de Desarrollo Comunal",
"Juana de Arco", "Fray Martín de Porres",
"El Jardín" and "Marino Gilibert" formed the
"Institución Educative Occidente" on 5 September 2002
(Decree No. 1847).
The flag, as shown graphically and described on the website of the institute, is horizontally divided blue-yellow-green.
Blue represents life, waters and heavens.
Yellow represents light, wealth and knowledge.
Green represents hope and commitment to work.
In May 2004, a competition was called for the design of the symbols (anthem, flag, coat of arms, motto and animal) of the new institute.
The jury considered 11 flag proposals in October 2004 and proclaimed the results on 12 November 2004.
The new symbols were officially presented on 11 April 2005 in a public ceremony.
