Departamento Administrativo de Seguridad - DAS

by Carlos Thompson, 5 November 2004

Translated from <> (located by Dov Gutterman): "On rectangular shape, is formed by sky blue and white colors in two equal horizontal bands, with sky blue on top and white on bottom, the national tricolor will appear in circular 'cucarda' shape in the center of the flag."  
Departamento Administrativo de Seguridad (Administrative Security Department), is Colombia's secret police, in charge of home land security, immigration, emigration, bodyguards for public servants, criminal investigations, etc.

Flags of the General Prision Direction in Colombia (Dirección General de Prisiones, known by their previous acronym: INPEC). The flag for flying is 2 m. width by 3 m. long, and the ceremonial flag is 1.10 m. width by 1.35 m. long, with the emblem in the center. In the emblem, in the left side of the book (dexter) is the following cite:   "Con el estudio, el trabajo y la disciplina romperás las cadenas del cautiverio, porque el estudio eleva, el trabajo redime y la disciplina libera". and around the legend says: "Ministerio de Justicia y del Derecho - Instituto Nacional Penitenciario y Carcelario"   I don't know if this has changed, since now the Ministry of Justice has merged with the Ministry of Interior, and INPEC official name is Dirección Nacional de Prisiones.

Seguro Social

by Jorge Candeias, 17 April 2004

In a commercial (?) site there is a flag that seems to be the national security flag. Is it a governmental flag or a commercial one?

Seguro (Social inssurance) refers surely to a social services from the state, like health and pensions. Seems that this hospital is collaborating with the department of Social inssurance of Colombia
Jaume Olle', 19 November 2003

The Instituto del Seguro Social is a governmental organization for health care and pension.  There are also some private organizations but this one is public.  I don't recall having seen an actual flag, but I cannot deny it either.

The flag is a white-green bicolour with an "S" logo in the upper field and the name in the top of the lower field.
