Institucion Educativa San Bartolomé (INESAB) was established on 28 October
1965 in Córdoba (Nariño Department) by the parish priest Remigio Nicolás Narváez
Benavides. Classes started on 25 December 1965.
The flag of the institute is white with the institute's emblem in the middle. White is a symbol of purity and rectitude.
The emblem of the institute is made of three concentric circles. The central circle features a torch pointing to the north. As a guide and source of light, the torch is a symbol of truth, liberty and personal education guided by perseverance, audacity and adventure. The torch is supported by the Bible, a symbol of the search for truth. The middle circle is charged with a cross symbolizing struggle, force, and spiritual triumph. Light emerges from the cross of Christ, as the eternal light of transcendence, resurrection, and redemption. The external circle is charged with the writing "HOC SIGNO VINCIS" (should be "IN HOC SIGNO VINCES" / In This Sign You Will Conquer) and "STO VIR" (Should be "ESTO VIR" / "Be a Man"), which form the essence of the institute's philosophy. Red is a symbol of love, courage, and spiritual highness. Yellow is a symbol of light and knowledge.
