Overview

I have just received from the Government of Cundinamarca a book that deals with on the shields and flags of this department. This book is called "Shields, Flags and Hymns of Cundinamarca", written by Rosalba Salazar Gallo for the Secretariat of Culture of Cundinamarca. Here is the flag of Madrid (Sabana Occidente Province).

From <www.cundinamarca.gov.co>:
"Está disenada en tres colores, guardando ciertas proporciones en sus medidas.
Franja superior: de color verde en un cincuenta por ciento significa la industria agrícola y el color que engalana su paisaje labrantío y fértil.
Franja central: de color oro o amarillo, en un veinticinco por ciento, del área total, motivada en la industria y su desarrollo técnico que da progreso al municipio. Además representa la nobleza, magnanimidad, riqueza, luz, constancia y sabiduría del pueblo.
Franja inferior: plata o color blanco en otro veinticinco por ciento, representa lo diáfano, la sensatez de su gente, pureza, integridad, obediencia, firmeza, vigilancia, elocuencia."

WRONG Flag in Use


by Jairo Alonso Méndez Méndez, 30 November 2004

In two different sites in the Bogotá Highplain, more exactly in Facatativá and the Bogotá River Toll, appears a flag of Madrid, as a triband, but with the stripes with equal measures. This design is wrong, and the correct one, as confirmed with many sources, is on top.
