The Flag

I live in Tolima  - Colombia. The flag of Tolima can be see at my site <www.cibertol.com>.
Eduardo Lo'pez, 11 March 2000

From <www.cibertol.com>:
"Adopted by the Department of Tolima, consists of two horizontal bands, one red-wine coloured symbolising the blood spilt by the heroes of Tolima in the struggle for independenvce and the other yellow symbolising the mineral wealth of the department."
Translated by Stephan Hurford, 16 March 2000

The image forwarded from <www.cibertol.com> was maroon over yellow, but the text says "color vinotinto", which means red wine color. I guess that no wine is really marron.
António Martins , 30 April 2000

There seems to be a confusion on the color used, as "vinotinto" gets translated as "red wine". Well, a "vino tinto" is indeed a red wine, but the color "vinotinto" is maroon.  Actually a websafe color that seems better to me would be: red: 60%, (153), green: 0%, (0), blue: 20%, (51).
