Overview

According to <alcaldiademonteria.tripod.com> the quarters are red-white/white blue and the star is smaller. Info from the site:
"La bandera está dividida en cuatro partes por rayas que se cruzan en el centro.
El rectángulo superior derecho de color rojo escarlata es símbolo de vida y pujanza, heroísmo, fuego, actividad. El rectángulo inferior izquierdo, de color azul pastel, es símbolo del cielo y del espacio ilímite. Los dos rectángulos blancos son símbolos de paz.
La estrella de cinco puntas es símbolo del destino promisorio. Su color dorado es una alusión a la cultura aurífera del fabuloso Zenú.
Diseñada por Mario Arbeláez Ceballos.
Adoptada por decreto No.076 de Junio 9 de 1960 de la Alcaldía Municipal de Montería.
Fuente: Córdoba: Escudos, Banderas, Himnos, Logosímbolos. Albio Martínez Simanca. Fincor. Montería. 1986."

Reported Flag

Here is a flag I spotted while I was in Montería, the capital of Córdoba department. I believe it to be the city flag, but I have not been able to confirm it. The proportions are 2:3 - I guess almost a standard in Colombian vexillology. The design is based on the national colors. The image above has bright colors, but the flags I spotted (about 10) were all pretty used up, so it was hard to tell what the proper shades were.
