The link to the page about symbols in the official municipal website is dead. Itís now (prob. unchanged) at http://www.orocue-casanare.gov.co/informacion_general.shtml#simbolos

Putative Flag


image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 12 February 2016

Although the same flag as reported back in 2008 is displayed (as a weird left-right panning animation with desaturation to black and white and back to color, here), its description mentions blue, absent in the flag, and doesn't mention white. This may be caused by mistaken duplicating of the text above, about the coat of arms, or maybe the animated GIF has wrong colors - we'd need an independent confirmation of the flag with middle white stripe. Here's the putative flag with middle blue stripe.

I also agree that the graphical depiction of the flag on their official website is very poor, but one has to take into account that it is a poor Municipality (in terms of budget) and also most likely very few people know how to handle proper cgi (I myself for instance can't design or "GIF" flags, still...) Anyway... After looking much closer, the description of the coat of arms mentions blue, and scrolling down, when describing the flag, they described the same color (blue) exactly the same as the above reference. So to me it is a bad case of "Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V" (or copy-paste). So the attached image you sent with blue stripe does not exist at all. You can verify for instance, on their Twitter account ( https://twitter.com/@alcaldiaorocue ) that they only have the tricolor featuring white instead of blue ( https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/1219077961/bandera_orocue.jpg  ).
