Universidad Francisco de Paula Santander

by Ivan Sache, 9 June 2001

Universidad Francisco de Paula Santander - 5:9 (apparently) flag, horizontally divided white-black-orange-light green (12:1:1:1). The name of the University, in black, is placed in the white stripe, above the logo of the University.
Flag shown on <>, located by Dov Gutterman, which says (in Spanish): 'There is obviously an historical gap: we don't know according to which process the flag which currently flies in the Benefactors' Park was adopted as the official flag of the University.'

Universidad Icesi

by Ivan Sache, 25 December 2002

ICESI was founded in 1979 by a group of business leaders from the Department of Valle. It is located in the area of Pance, a suburb in the south of Cali. The flag is horizontally divided blue-white-green (1:2:1) with the emblem of the University placed in the midle of the white stripe. The official size of the flag is 1.10 x 1.80 m (approx. 3.5 x 5.8 ft). The emblem of ICESI is made of a blue rosette with letters L placed concentrically around the circumference, UNIVERSIDAD in green capital letters and ICESI in blue capital letters, both being placed right to the rosette, and a green line under all items, which symbolizes unity.

Universidad Libre

Image based on <>.
Dov Gutterman, 21 July 2002

According to the picture at <>, the seal seems smaller and towards the hoist.  The description says however that the seal is in the center.

Universidad Manuela Beltran

by Ivan Sache, 9 June 2001

by Carlos Thompson, 24 June 2003

Universidad Manuela Beltran (Bogotá) - 2:3 (by default) flag, horizontally divided white-red. Flag shown on <>, located by Dov Gutterman.
- White stands for peace, science and academic harmony.
- Red stands for effort and solitary work.
Ivan Sache, 9 June 2001

In the website of the university reported above they only say that the colors of the flag are white and red and some drawing that is not a flag is shown, suggesting a horizontal divided flag. In <> , there is a picture of the flag and a link to an animated version.  This annimate version is horizontal white over red, with the emblem.  The photograph is from a stand flag but it seems to be diagonal divided, white on the top-hoist and red on the fly-bottom, and includes the emblem (set diagonally so at it looks right in the stand flag).
The flag I have seen flying is diagonally divided, with no emblem.  Let me confiirm, I am pretty sure it is diagonally divided but last time I checked there was no wind (and I was driving) so I am not sure on the disposition of the colors.  Red seemed to be above, and white seemed to be towards the fly, anyhow.

Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana

Flag of UPB is based on <>.
Dov Gutterman, 3 June 2001

This University is Colombian. UPB stands for: Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana. The flag of UPB is horizontally divided red-green. 2:3 proportion used by default. The website says that red stands for charity, and black for science and modesty.
Ivan Sache, 3 June 2001

UPB located in the famous city of Medellin, Colombia. At <>, you'll find the Coat of Arms in which you find prominently the Cross of Christ (called by them "Cruz de los Caballeros de Portugal", that is, "Cross of the Knights of Portugal").

Universidad Santiago de Cali

Faculty of Law and Political Sciences

by Ivan Sache, 25 December 2002

Faculty of Law and Political Sciences, University Santiago of Cali - The image of the flag, shown without comments on the aforementioned website, is a bit problematic. The flag is made of three horizontal stripes, blue-white-green, and a vertical pink stripe is placed along the hoist. The overall proportion of the image is 100:222, but excluding the vertical stripe, we have a 1:2 flag! The colours seem also to be weird, especially the pink, but they are derived from the University shield, which is shown with a blue field, a green border and pink writings.

Universidad Santo Tomás

Note: this image is incomplete - see below.
by Carlos Thompson, 28 May 2003

Translated from Universidad Santo Tomás websites: <> (Bogotá) and <> (Bucaramanga, Santander):
"The flag is composed by five horizontal bands, three in green and two white alternated, the university shield in the middle and in the top the national tricolor in triangle".
The pictures do not show the flag completly , so I know I miss the "national tricolor in triangle", this should mean a triangle of yellow, blue and red.
