Note: This flag was previously reported as Atlantico Department 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.

of Barranquilla, and the 8 Points Star Version is one is the Cartagena's.
