House flag of Columba

The house flag of Columba, as shown on a share issued in 1894 and shown on the Boone Scripophily website, is white with a red cross throughout and in the centre a blue disk bearing a white dove flying away from the hoist. The dove recalls the name of the company (in French, a dove is a colombe).
