Escuela Latinoamericana de Medicina (ELAM - Latin American
College of Medicine) was created in the 1999 by President Fidel
Castro. The first class graduated in 2005. Each class has 1,500
students. ELAM is located in Santa Fé, north-east of La Havana,
on grounds formerly owned by the Naval Academy
"Granma". ELAM websit is at <www.elacm.sld.cu>.
The flag of ELAM is white with an emblem made of two white hands outlined in green holding the Earth, white outlined in red. Central and South America is shown in plain red on the Earth, while Cuba is shown in plain green. There is a Rod of Ascelpius emerging from Cuba, with the staff red and the snake green. Below the emblem is written: ESCUELA LATINOAMARICANA DE MEDICINA (in red) CUBA (in green). Image at <www.elacm.sld.cu>.
The coat of arms of ELAM has nearly nothing to do with the emblem shown on the flag.
