The Flag

This was the Cartagena Republic flag (1811-14) and the United Provinces of Nueva Granada provisional flag (1814). The star is eighpointed, but is frequently drawn fivepointed.

Above is the flag according the constitution provisions. Same image is feautured in the arms. The 8 pointed yellow star is the supposed original flag of the republic of Cartagena was described only after that the provincial flag was already adopted. When the provincial flag was adopted the Cartagena republic flag was reconstructed as the above and was adopted as such.
