Translated from municipal
"Green represents the firmness of the inhabitants' moral principles, their acute faith and religious beliefs, sincere friendhsip, empowerment, respect of the others and hope in a prosperous future, outlined in the fertility of the fields.
White represents the attachment of the inhabitants to their territory, their noble thoughts and ideas required to maintain the unity of the territory, love and peace.
Dark blue represents generosity of its rivers and of its natural environment, and biodiversity resources."
There is a horizontally divided red-white-green flag shown on a photograph taken during a visit to Corferias, the international center of trade and exhibition located in Bogotá. The flag is not necessarily related to Úmbita.
