The flag of CEIPA is yellow, for excellence, with two thin white stripes, for transparency required for excellence in business, in the upper and lower parts of the flag, and the shield of the institute in the middle.
The shield of CEIPA is U-shaped, for University. The symbol placed on the shield was used in the Middle Ages by merchants. The four arrows symbolize the four compass directions, in which commerce should spread, whereas the moon crescents and stars are symbols of business. This medieval symbol was selected to recall that both business and university concepts date back to the Middle Ages.

Some background from the university website:
"The Colombian Polytechnic Jaime Isaza Cadavid is a Public University Institution, funded by the departmental government of Antioquia. Founded in 1964, the Polytechnic now caters for approximately 13,200 students.  The main campus is situated in El Poblado, in the city of Medellín, and counts on 1,300 educational and 350 administrative staff,  as well as its three academic centers in other municipalities of the department of Antioquia.
The Polytechnic is a national leader in technological education and at present offers higher education at technological, technical and academic levels with a range of pregraduate and postgraduate courses in areas such as Engineering, Administration, Agrarian Sciences, Audiovisual Communication, Sport and Recreation.

"Poli" is named after Jaime Isaza Cadavid (1919-1965). Cadavid studied in the Faculty of Law of the University of Antioquia. He had liberal leanings and was elected Deputy at the Departmental Assembly of Antioquia, (Municipal?) Councillor in Fredonia and Antioquia, Deputy at the Chamber and Senator of the Republic.

The flag of "Poli" recalls the shield of the University, which is per fess or and vert with additional charges. Or/yellow symbolizes "pujanza" (pugnacity?) of the students whereas Vert/green symbolizes hope and confidence in the future.

Pontificia Universidad Javeriana


image by Carlos Thompson, 27 May 2003

"Pontificia Universidad Javeriana" is a catholic university dated from 1621. You can find the flag and symbols of this university <www.javeriana.edu.co>.
Jorge Eduardo Alonso, 8 June 2002

The flag of the University is made of three horizontal stripes yellow, white and blue, of equal width. The flag is presecribed by General Regulation #794.
As pointed out by Jorge, the University has a very long history, divided into two distinct periods:
1621-1767 - Pope Gregor XV allowed the Jesuits to found universities in South America by a brief dated 9 July 1621. The "Academia de San Francisco Javier", named after St. Francis-Xavier, was confirmed by an order of King of Spain Philip III dated 2 March 1622. On 23 June 1704, Pope Clement XII granted the "Academia" the title of "Public University". The first period of the University ended on 1 July 1767, when King of Spain Charles III expelled the Jesuits from his dominions.
1930 - The University was reestablished on 1 October 1930. On 31 July 1937 (St. Ignatius of Loyola's Day), the University was granted by the Holy See the title of "Pontifical University". Its current statute was approved by the Holy See on 27 April 1978 and by Resolution # 5117, dated 16 May 1985, signed by the Minister of National Eductaion of Columbia.
Ivan Sache, 9 June 2002

Concering Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Bogotá, the site just says "blue", but the shade I have always seen flying is light sky blue (together with the Vatican and Colombian flags). Pontificia Universidad Javeriana, Cali, Valle del Cauca is actually the same University as Javeriana Bogotá, but has a lot of authonomy.  The simbols, incliding the flag, are the same.  In the website <www.puj.edu.co> they do use the light shade of blue.
Carlos Thompson, 27 May 2003

I study at the PUJ and the flag that I've seen, which is flown rarely (at beginning of semesters, when an important jesuit dies etc.), use the same shade of blue than that of the Colombia flag.
Jaime Vengoechea, 10 June 2003

I am based mostly on memory (I am Javeriano too) and on these pictures: <sparta.javeriana.edu.co//img1.jpg> and <img5.jpg>.
Carlos Thompson, 10 June 2003


image by Carlos Thompson, 22 July 2003

I was today at my University and it was an interesting display of flags. On each pole set, they had flying the flags of Colombia (in the middle), the University (at the viewers left) and the Vatican (without the charge: plain yellow and white per pale; at the right). Also, on every mast there was two vertical flags framed: the University's and the Colombian flag.  (Javeriana flag at viewers left, and top to the left in both flags).
The shade of blue on all those flags was the same shade as the Colombian flag (some times it seem slightly lighter, but definitively it was not sky blue).

Universidad Antonio Nariño

The Colegio Mayor de Cultura Femenina de Cundinamarca was established by law #45 in 1945. It became an Universitary institution in 1981 and was granted its current name by law #91 in 1993.
The flag of the institution was prescribed by 'acuerdo' #027 in 1985. It seesm to be horizontally divided green-white-red. The image on the source quoted below shows the upper strip partially white, but this must be a mistake. Once again, confirmation of the true flag design is required.
