Overview

In the Book "Escudos, Banderas e Himnos de Cundinamarca", the flag of Zipacón appears with a similar design as Latvia Flag (Three stripes, the second more thinner that first and third), but I traveled to Zipacón eight days ago, and the flag is the same that the flag as above: composed by three stripes, equal length and width, green, black and white.

The flag hoisted at the municipality have three equal stripes.

From <www.cundinamarca.gov.co>:
"Compuesta por tres franjas horizontales en colores, verde, negro y blanco que significan lo siguiente:
La franja superior de color verde esmeralda, simboliza la esperanza y su pródiga agricultura.
La franja del centro un poco más angosta que las otras dos, y de color negro significa, la riqueza carbonífera que en épocas pasadas tuviese tanto auge, dando prosperidad al municipio.
La franja inferior de color blanco representa, la paz que siempre ha reinado en la región, la bondad ancestral y las sanas costumbres de la gente de Zipacón."
Felipe Carrillo, 20 November 2004
