Overview

Panqueba is a municipality in the Colombian Department of Boyacá, part of the the subregion of the Gutiérrez Province. It was founded on 23 March 1635.
The flag of Panqueba is horizontally divided white green. On the upper stripe there is a green inscription with its name, and the bottom stripe is charged with 9 white stars in a single row.

Translated from municipal web site: "The flag of Panqueba is made of two horizontal stripes of 1.80 x 1.30 m, with the colours, from top to bottom, meaning: - White: Peace, beauty and presence of snow topping the cordillera; - Green: Hope in a better future, also the greenness of our fields."
The flag would have odd proportions of 13:18. I count nine stars on the green stripe. However, the first quarter of the municipal coat of arms has ten stars (9 + 1), "representing history".
