Overview

Image of the flag of the city of Bucaramanga (Santander department) is available at <www.bucaramanga.com> with this information in Spanish: "Fue disenada por el historiador Gustavo Gómez Mejía. Está constituída por dos bandas verdes a los extremos, y en medio de éstas, una amarilla. En el centro se halla un círculo azul, rodeado por una orla roja. En medio del círculo azul hay una estrella blanca. En el círculo rojo está escrita la siguiente leyenda: "Bajo el azul de su cielo y defendida por la sangrer generosa de sus hijos, Bucaramanga está abierta a los cuatro horizontes de la Patria".
Unfortunately, at that size, the long text supposed to be in the red circle can not be read. I'll try to make a detailed image of the central part of this flag in the near future.

Here is my translation:
Was designed by the historian Gustavo Gomez Mejia. Made of two green stripes with a yellow one in the middle. In the center is a blue disk, surrounded with a red circle. In the middle of the blue disk is a white star. [All of that is everything but precise. Just compare the image with the verbose description.]
In the red circle is written the following legend: "Below the azure of its sky and defended by the generous blood of its sons, Bucaramanga is opened to the four horizons of the motherland".
