Translated from municipal
"The flag was approved by the Municipal Council by Decree No 007 on 4 October 1983. The flag of Sutatenza is made of three horizontal stripes of equal size:
- Upper stripe: White, symbol of peace and freedom;
- Median stripe: Yellow, symbol of the richness of education;
- Lower stripe: Green, symbol of hope in a better future and use of the natural resources, especially for agriculture."
On the photographs taken during the oath taking by the Mayor (January 2008), the flag (or, at least, the flag shown on the stand together with the Colombian national flag) seems to be horizontally divided white-green.
