Overview

I have just received from the Government of Cundinamarca a book that deals with on the shields and flags of this department. This book is called "Shields, Flags and Hymns of Cundinamarca", written by Rosalba Salazar Gallo for the Secretariat of Culture of Cundinamarca. Here is the flag of Viotá (in Tequendama Province). The colors in the book are green and red which is incorrect. The correct flag of Viotá is RED and GREEN in a horizontal bi-stripe with a 3:2 scale.

From <www.cundinamarca.gov.co>:
"Está formada por dos franjas de igual tamano de colores verde y rojo.
La parte superior de color verde significa la agricultura, principal fuente de trabajo y enorme riqueza del municipio.
La parte inferior en color rojo, representa las grandes luchas agrarias sostenidas en el pasado y las que forman parte del legado histórico del municipio. También los frutos maduros del café principal cultivo y fuente de trabajo en la región."
Note: The image in this site show GREEN over RED as the Previously Reported Flag.

Yesterday, I've called at the Municipality of Viotá, and they confirmed me the colors of the flag. The colors are RED in first place and GREEN in second place, in a horizontal bi-stripe. Confirmed by Municipality of Viotá, Mayor's Office (in Spanish means "Municipio de Viotá, Despacho del Alcalde").
