The Flag

Flag and Coat of Arms are at <www.casanare.gov.co>.
Dov Gutterman, 15 June 2006

I created a new image: stray browen pixel removed, symmetrical stripes, standard RGB values. "Sabana larga" is Spanish for "long grassland" the wider green stripe on the flag could be a convoluted pun on that meaning.
The referenced webpage at the official website is now archived. The original flag image is not clear about the stripes' proportions, due to being stylized and shown wavy. It could be 1+2+1, as despicted in our site, or 2+3+2, or any such unequal, symmetrical apportionment. Better images (esp. photos or actual flags) are necessary.
A linked page offers further details: Authors of the flag are Eduard Leonardo Piñeros Rodríguez and Edgar Nevardo Piñeros Buitrago; green symbolizes local flora, yellow is for natural riches, namely oranges, and red stands for history and good nature of local people.

This page is not definite, but looks like equal-striped or close to that.
This page shows not the exact same information, but it does say that the stripes are equal.
Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 05 February 2016

Now, in the official website of the Municipality, regarding its symbols, the flag is described as horizontally divided in three equal stripes (top being yellow, middle being green and bottom being red).
In that page, a full heraldic description of all the symbols of the coat of arms is found, by Pedro Francisco Ramírez Infante, and the authors of the coat of arms are Irma Estela Solano Ramírez and Celinia Romero Cufiño. The official Law regarding the symbols is Resolución No. 002 of November 30, 1994 (page 1 and page2), passed by the Concejo Municipal (City Council).

It was wrongly reported for 10 years ago due to the misleading graphic at the official website.
