Presentation of Pando department

A star was added to the national coat of arms in 1961 to represent the department of Pando (created in 1938).
Mark Sensen, 09 Mar 2002 and 11 Mar 2002

The department of Pando is the northernmost department of Bolivia. Area 63 827 km2; population (1997), 53 124, making of it the least populated of the Bolivian departments.

Description of the flag

According to a plate I received some years ago, the current Pando department flag is the flag used by the Bolivian Amazonia Volunteers in the Chaco War (the volunteers were named Columna del Porvenir). Today white is for peace, generosity and integrity; the green is for vegetation and the hope for the XXI century. Sources: [m2nXX] and [ban]
Jaume Ollé, 02 Nov 1996 and 02 Sep 2001

On 17 Feb 2001, Jan-Patrick Fischer reported after in loco observation that the Pando Department used by La Paz authorities is rather white over green bicolor, not green over white bicolor reported as obsolete, nor the white - green - white tricolor some reported.
António Martins, 02 Sep 2001

Several sources reported white over green. These include a plate posted to me from Bolivia, and Banderas [ban], and even several personal communications. Information in Vexillologie 94 [vex] about the triband was dated later and then I believed that can be accurate.

Green over white version

The flag was originally horizontal, green over white; probably in 1989, another white stripe was added (white, green and white).

Green and white triband version

Several sources reported white over green. But Vexilologie 94 [vex] (article based on [b9o90] — ed.) show a bit different flag of three horizontal stripes white, green and white.
Jaume Ollé, 22 Aug 1999

Information in Vexillologie 94 [vex] was dated later than the reports about white over green and then I believed that can be accurate. But after Jan Patrick’s observations (generally attested by photos) I believe now that white over green must be correct and that the triband flag was only a mistake

The flag was originally horizontal, green over white; probably in 1989, another white stripe was added (white, green and white).
