"Colegio Hermanas Misioneras de la Consolata" was
founded on 6 February 1950 in Bogotá by the Consolata
The Institute of Consolata Missionaries was founded on 29 January 1901 in Turin (Italy) by Blessed Giuseppe Allamano (1851-1926), who subsequently founded the Congregation of the Consolata Missionaries in 1910. The congregation settled in Colombia in 1950. See: <www.ismico.org>.
The flag of the institute, according to photos and the description available on the institute website, is horizontally divided blue-white.
Blue is an invitation to transcendence, symbolizing the greatness and kindness of the blessed Virgin.
White represents the immaculated purity of the Blessed Virgin.
On photos taken during the Colours ceremony, the flag appears with a very pale blue shade, similar to the colour of the students' dress and much lighter than the blue shade of the nearby Colombian national flag.
