The state university Instituto Tecnológico del Cibao Oriental (ITECO) was founded on 10 February 1982 by the Organism for the Development of the Province of Sánchez Ramírez, a state body created by Decree 1206 on 27 September 1979 with the aim of using 5% of the benefits of the mining company Rosario Dominicana located in Pueblo Viejo, Cotuí. ITECO was founded by Engineer Ramón Flores García and other citizens interested in the development of the region. The Institute was inaugurated on 11 Octobre 1982, with 258 students. Decree 820 signed by the Executive on 25 February 1983 allowed to Institute to give titles and diplomas.
The flag of ITECO is yellow with the emblem of the Institute in the middle. The colours of the emblem represent the policy and the priorities of the Institute. Brown represents interest in the land and the natural resources; yellow represents the mines, which are at the origin of the foundation of ITECO; green represents the environment. In the middle of the emblem is a symbolic representation of man.

Colegio Serafín de Asís was set up on 2 February 1931 in Santo Domingo by the Franciscan Sisters of the Sacred Heart, a congregation founded in 1884 by the Spanish nun Blessed Mother María del Carmen González Ramos.
The first white and red flag used by Colegio Serafín de Asís was offerred by alumna María Natalia de la Rocha. A photo shown on the institute’s website shows the today’s flag as horizontally divided red-white-red, seemingly 1:2:1, with the institute’s coat of arms in the middle.
The coat of arms of Colegio Serafín de Asís is vertically divided red-white-red. The red stripes, meaning love and martyre, are charged with the white writing "Serafín / de / Asís" (left), "Santo / Domingo / R.D." (left). In the lower part of the central stripe are shown the arms of Christ and St. Francis of Assisi crossed per saltire; Christ’s arm is naked, while Francis’s arm is clad and has the stigmates on the hand. In the upper part of the central stripe is shown a Christian cross surrounded by two hearts ech surmontyed by a Christian cross, here the sacred hearts of Jesus and Mary. The congregation’s motto "Paz y Bien" (Peace and Good) is placed below the crossed arms.
