In the site they say that the flag is green and brown.
Carlos Thompson, 23 March 2003

Universidad de Córdoba was established in 1962 in Montería by Departmental Ordinance No. 6 and officially registered in 1964 by Governmental Decree No. 319. Law No. 37 of 3 August 1966 conferred to the university the status of Decentralized Autonomous Entity. However, the university was firmly established only in 1970, after approval by the State Council. The foundation of the university is credited to the bacteriologist Elías Bechara Zainúm (1920-2013), who pushed the project and was appointed first director of the university in March 1964. Classes started on 6 April 1964 in rooms provided by Colegio Nacional José María Córdoba, with two Faculties (Agronomy; Veterinary and Zootechnical Medicine) and one School (Topography). The university was relocated in 1968 in the New York estate, which had been purchased in 1965. The university is now made of eight Faculties: Education and Humanities, Veterinary and Zootechnical Medicine, Engineering, Basic Sciences, Agricultural Sciences, Health Sciences, and Economical Sciences
The flag of the university is horizontally divided green-coffee brown. Green represents the prosperous growth of vegetal species, and, as far as cattle is concerned, of the species improved by scientific intervention. Coffee brown represents the fertility of the soil.

Cundinamarca, Universidad de (UDEC)


image by Ivan Sache, 27 December 2008

At <www.unicundi.edu.co> there is the official Coat of Arms of the Universidad de Cundinamarca (Cundinamarca University) and an isotype.  I think that the flag of the UDEC (acronym of the University) is the same flag as the Cundinamarca Department, but with the UDEC Coat of Arms in the center.
Jairo Alonso Méndez Méndez, 7 October 2005

"Universidad de Cundinamarca" (UDEC) was recognized on 30 December 1992 by the Ministry of National Education (Decree No. 19530), succeeding, as a university, "Instituto Universitaria de Cundinamarca" (ITUC), recognized on 19 December 1969 by the Ministry of National Education (Decree No. 045).
The flag of UDEC, as shown graphically and described on the UDEC website, is white with the shield of UDEC in the middle. White represents the light that enlightens and guide us, as presented in the motto of UDEC, "Ex umbra in solem" (in Latin, "From darkness to light"). White also represents the purity of thought, ethics, equity, loyalty, integrity, obedience, dignity, eloquence and triumph, characteristics of the UDEC community.
The shield of UDEC, placed in the middle of the flag represents the commitment to permanently unite in the academic and scientific development the cultural tradition, inclusion, social projection and transparent governance to the service of the community.
The flag is one of the most representative symbols of UDEC, used in graduation ceremonies, inauguration of academic events and commemorations.
The graduates of UDEC shall take the oath on the flag. The flag shall be half-staffed after the death of students, professors or administrators of UDEC, and may cover their coffin.
The shield of UDEC is oval, with, on a golden background, a sun, symbol of life and source of all kind of existence, surrounded by 15 points representing the 15 provinces forming the Department of Cundinamarca. as a symbol of cultural tradition, inclusion, social projection and transparent governance to the service of the community, contrasting with the green disk forming the center of the shield and the green border framing it.
Gold represents wealth, strength, nobleness, faith, constancy, the sun and fire.
Green represents life strength, the natural environment, work, growth, serenity, abundance, victory and immortality. It is the colour of permanent production.
The sun is a symbol of life, eternity, greatness, with the green center meaning growth and future. Its location in the middle of the shield recalls us the commitment to achieve our dreams and reach our objectives. In the center of the sun is a stylized map of the department, outlined with the colours of the flag of the department (blue, yellow and red), recalling the origin of the UDEC. The green border represents our field protected by discipline, inflexibility and scientific knowledge.
A scroll placed under the shield bears the motto "Ex umbra in solem", in Latin, "From darkness to light", which can be philosophically extended to "From ignorance to knowledge".

Jairo Alonso Méndez Méndez, 7 October 2005

This is the former emblem of UDEC, possibly placed on a flag, but both the emblem and flag have clearly been superseded by the current symbols.
