"Our flag is rectangular with a white latin cross in the center, superimposed on a red background. The red color represents the blood spilled by eminent Momposinos, and the white cross the religiosity of Mompox inherited from Spain. The flag of Mompox was taken to resemble the flag of Switzerland, a supreme example of neutrality in international conflicts."
