Escuela Normal Sady Tobón Calle was established in El Cerrito (Valle
Department) by the parish priest, Sady Tobón Calle. Classes started on 8
February 1960 in a house owned by Cristóbal Duarte. On 20 April 1960, the parish
priests of San Miguel, Miranda, Carcasí, and Capitanejo asked the Bishop to
close the school, arguing that Father Tobón had initiated it only for his own
enrichment and that education given there was impious and against the Christian
religion, aiming at increasing the number of Liberals in the area. The Bishop
visited the school during the next two days and deemed the accusations against
Tobón null and voided.
Jairo Pimiento Traslaviña, appointed director of the institute in 1992, was murdered in a terrorist attempt on 2 December 1993. The institute was renamed Escuela Normal Superior Sady Tobón Calle by Resolution No. 9,026 of 12 October 2001; Father Sady Tobón Calle died on 17 January 2004 in Medellín.
The flag of the institute, adopted in 1962, is horizontally divided white-green with the institute's emblem, placed on a white disk, in the middle. White is a symbol of joy and aspiration to peace. Green is a symbol of hope.
The emblem of the institute is an heart-shaped shield, with the same colours as the flag, but arranged transversally. The upper part is white, a symbol of transparency, peace, and verity, and charged with the Greek letter "Α" and "Ω", which represent the presence of God, the beginning and end of everything, in all our acts. The lower part is green, charged with a human figure in a dynamic attitude, wrapped inside the Colombian tricolor and bearing an Olympic torch, and with an open book, as a symbol of science and pedagogic knowledge.
The shield has a black bordure charged with the name of the institute and the name of the municipality (at the top) in golden yellow letters. Beneath the shield is a scroll or inscribed with the motto "DIOS CIENCIA CARIDAD" (God Science Charity) inscribed in black letters. The original design of the shield was modified in 2001, following the initiative of Jaime Hugo Pulido, director of the school.
