Overview

From <www.envigado.gov.co>:
"Por Acuerdo N° 001, del 19 de Noviembre de 1982, el Concejo de Envigado, adoptó la bandera Municipal, acogiéndose a las normas establecidas en nuestra constitución.
De acuerdo al articulado del mandato edilicio, se tomó el color verde como símbolo de la Antioqueñ:idad que siempre ha caracterizado a las gentes de Envigado, unido al color naranja emblema de la pujanza, dinamismo y proyección hacia el desarrollo y el progreso constante de permanente vigencia en la ciudad."
Esteban Rivera Velez, 5 September 2001

The flag was officially adopted by Decree #001 on 19 November 1982. Green represents Antioquian character ("Antioquieñidad") Orange represents power, dynamism and progress.
Envigado was granted municipal status in 1814. It has the highest standard of living among the Colombian municipalities.
