Colegio Federico Ozanam


by Ivan Sache, 14 August 2002

The College was founded in 1946 as Escuela (School) Federico Ozanam. I have not been able to find out where it is located, however. Frédéric Ozanam (Milano, 1813 - Marseilles, 1853) was a French historian and writer. In 1833, he founded the St. Vincent-de-Paul Society. He rejoined the French Republic in 1848 and founded with Lacordaire the Christian-Democrat newspaper L'Ere Nouvelle (The New Era, 1848-1849).
The flag of the College is described but not shown as horizontally divided yellow-blue (amarillo-azul). Therefore I have used default 2:3 proportion in my image.

Colegio Franciscano del Virrey Solis


by Ivan Sache, 7 November 2004

The Instituto Virrey Solis was founded in Bucaramanga on 3 February 1941 by members of the Franciscan Community. Its goal was to provide poor children with a religious, moral and material education. The first director of the Instituto was Friar Emilio Bautista Lozano (1941-1944). The flag of the Colegio is horizontally divided yellow-red with the coat of arms of the Colegio in the middle. Yellow and green are the colours of the municipal flag of Bucaramanga. Yellow stands for the treasures of knowledge, science, feelings and values. Green stands for the hope that the youth educated in the Colegio will build a new society mainly based on justice and peace; green also staznds for the love of nature, the legacy of the patron saints of the ecologists, St. Francis of Assise. The crown above the shield stands for the man who gave his name to the Collegio, the Virrey Solis (the Sun Vice-Roy?), and symbolizes leadership. The collar surrounding the shied has three knots symbolizing the three vows of obedience, poverty and chastity done by the members of the community that rules the Colegio. Over a background with the colours of our flag (yellow and green), the cross symbolizes the Christian denomiunation of the Colegio. An arm holding a torch appears from the bottom of the shield, expression learning, knowledge and enlightment. The scroll below the shield bears the Colegio's motto Virtud y Ciencia (Virtue and Science), which are the basis of the education in the Colegio. The anthem of the Colegio has its third stanza dedicated to the flag of the Collegio:   "Como un campo de esmeralda que la aurora en luz baño, verde y oro, sacro emblema nuestra ruta ilumino. verde y oro! flota altivo Nuestro fúlgido pendón: Esperanza y luz del cielo que ilumina el corazón!"  (Like a field of emeralds Bathed in the light of dawn, Green and gold, sacred emblem illuminate our way Green and gold! May our ? banner flay: Hope and light of the sky Which illuminate the heart!).

Colegio Franciscano Fray Rafael de La Serna


by Ivan Sache, 10 July 2001

The flag of the Franciscan College Fray Rafael de la Serna is horizontally divided yellow-green. From the flying flag shown on <www.frayrafael.edu.co>, located by Dov Gutterman, the default proportion of the flag seems to be 1:2.
The college was founded in 1941 in Medellin, Antioquia and its first name was Instituto Cristobal Colon. By ministerial order #1610 from 6 June 1953, the college was renamed as a tribute to the Franciscan friar who founded the University of Antioquia. Yellow symbolizes the wealth of [mente], spîrit and department of Antioquia. Green symbolizes the hope in the youth and the exuberant vegetation of Antioquia. It is said that the dimensions of the flag are precise, but not what they are indeed.

Colegio Lacordaire


by Ivan Sache, 9 June 2001

Colegio Lacordaire (Cali) - 2:3 flag, horizontally divided black-white-yellow. <www.lacordaire.edu.co>, located by Dov Gutterman, gives a detailed explanation of the colour symbolics (in Spanish): Black and white are colours specific to the Dominican Order. Yellow is specific to the Collegio Lacordaire. Black is the colour of penitence and mortification, necessary to reach triumph and perfection, black absorbs light as well as prayer, study and communitiy life absorb truth. White is the colour of purity, joy, truth etc. and constitutes the invisible armour that shall protect the young students from error and evil. Yellow is the colour of light and spiritual wealth etc.
More information from 'Petit Larousse Illustre': The Dominican Order (also called Order of Preaching Friars) was founded in 1215 by St. Dominic, a Castilan monk (c.1170-1221, canonized in 1234) and confirmed by Pope Honorius III in 1216. The Order was founded to fight the Cathar heresy, and its rule was a community democratic life totally devoted to predication of God's World. Henri Lacordaire (1802-1861) was a French priest who took the Dominican cloth in 1827 and restored the Order in France in 1830. He was elected deputy in Marseilles in 1848 and founded the Christian-Democrat review 'L'Ere Nouvelle' ('The New Era'), Because of the political troubles of May-June 1848, he abandoned politics and journalism and devoted the rest of his life to the restoration of the Dominican Order, establishing several schools and colleges.
