The current Pando department flag is the flag used
by the Bolivian Amazonia Volunteers in the Chaco War
(the volunteers were named Columna del Porvenir).
Today white is for peace, generosity and integrity;
the green is for vegetation and the hope for the XXI
century. Sources: [med]
Jaume Ollé, 02 Nov 1996
Several sources reported white over green.
But Vexilologie 94
(article based on [bol90] — ed.)
show a bit different flag of three horizontal
stripes white, green and white.
Jaume Ollé, 22 Aug 1999
The flag was originally horizontal, green over white;
probably in 1989, another white stripe was added (white,
green and white).
