The Flag

From <www.apartado.gov.co> , located by Dov Gutterman:
"Made of two horizontal stripes and a triangle, whose meaning is as follows:
The upper white stripe represents peace, which the region of Uraba so much cherishes.
The lower orange stripe represents the wealth of the town and the human warmth of its inhabitants.
The green triangle, on the left and dividing the field into two equal stripes, expresses the hope, the harmony and the fertility of our land."
