Universidad del Bosque


by Carlos Thompson, 28 May 2003

Translated from Universidad del Bosque (Bogota) website at <www.unbosque.edu.co>:
"Using several schemas used for sumarizing a few of the program ideas, the flag was designed.  A rectangle which two oblique lines divide in three triangles: the upper and the lower are rectangle (triangles) and in the middle another triangles that is openning till it reache the bass and continues to the infinity meaning the raising complexity of our studies, the progressive increment of our knowledge that never ends.  The upper in orange color, the color of medicine, the lower in green color symbol of hope, and the central white, sign of clean and purity and in it the symbol".

Anyway, the text near the image clearly states that the proportion shall be 22:27, the usual size being 1.10 x 1.35 m and the flag being hoisted on a pole of 2.50 m high. The shield of the University shall be placed in its middle (I don't understand of what, the pole, or, most probably, the flag itself).

Universidad Manuela Beltran


by Ivan Sache, 9 June 2001


by Carlos Thompson, 24 June 2003

Universidad Manuela Beltran (Bogotá) - 2:3 (by default) flag, horizontally divided white-red. Flag shown on <www.umb.edu.co>, located by Dov Gutterman.
Symbolics:
- White stands for peace, science and academic harmony.
- Red stands for effort and solitary work.
Ivan Sache, 9 June 2001

In the website of the university reported above they only say that the colors of the flag are white and red and some drawing that is not a flag is shown, suggesting a horizontal divided flag. In <www.umb.edu.co> , there is a picture of the flag and a link to an animated version.  This annimate version is horizontal white over red, with the emblem.  The photograph is from a stand flag but it seems to be diagonal divided, white on the top-hoist and red on the fly-bottom, and includes the emblem (set diagonally so at it looks right in the stand flag).
The flag I have seen flying is diagonally divided, with no emblem.  Let me confiirm, I am pretty sure it is diagonally divided but last time I checked there was no wind (and I was driving) so I am not sure on the disposition of the colors.  Red seemed to be above, and white seemed to be towards the fly, anyhow.

Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana


by Ivan Sache, 3 June 2001

Flag of UPB is based on <www.upb.edu.co>.
Dov Gutterman, 3 June 2001

This University is Colombian. UPB stands for: Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana. The flag of UPB is horizontally divided red-green. 2:3 proportion used by default. The website says that red stands for charity, and black for science and modesty.
Ivan Sache, 3 June 2001

UPB located in the famous city of Medellin, Colombia. At <www.upb.edu.co>, you'll find the Coat of Arms in which you find prominently the Cross of Christ (called by them "Cruz de los Caballeros de Portugal", that is, "Cross of the Knights of Portugal").

Universidad Santiago de Cali

Faculty of Law and Political Sciences


by Ivan Sache, 25 December 2002

Faculty of Law and Political Sciences, University Santiago of Cali - The image of the flag, shown without comments on the aforementioned website, is a bit problematic. The flag is made of three horizontal stripes, blue-white-green, and a vertical pink stripe is placed along the hoist. The overall proportion of the image is 100:222, but excluding the vertical stripe, we have a 1:2 flag! The colours seem also to be weird, especially the pink, but they are derived from the University shield, which is shown with a blue field, a green border and pink writings.

Universidad Santo Tomás


Note: this image is incomplete - see below.
by Carlos Thompson, 28 May 2003

Translated from Universidad Santo Tomás websites: <www.usta.edu.co> (Bogotá) and <www.ustabuca.edu.co> (Bucaramanga, Santander):
"The flag is composed by five horizontal bands, three in green and two white alternated, the university shield in the middle and in the top the national tricolor in triangle".
The pictures do not show the flag completly , so I know I miss the "national tricolor in triangle", this should mean a triangle of yellow, blue and red.
