The image is based on Gaceta de Banderas 15, "Simbolos Patrios" Gobernación de Caldas, Secretaríade Educación Departamental.

I must stress that this source is a poor indicator of the actual proportions of the municipal flags. Some flags are just annexed to the Coat of Arms in a square proportion. Two of these flags were presented previously in a 2:1 proportion.  Many of these flags could be such.  I think it will be wise to place a note that indicates that the true proportions of these flags could be 2:1 also.

From <www.gobernaciondecaldas.gov.co>:
"La Bandera - Está compuesta por dos franjas iguales que le dan forma rectangular. La franja superior es de color blanco cuyo significado ha sido considerado por la pureza del agua de la región, del aire y del espíritu transparente de los doradenses para comprometerse en grandes empresas. La franja inferior es de color rojo que se interpreta como el del sacrificio, la entrega, la lucha y la constancia de todo un pueblo para convertirse en una gran ciudad."
