Colombian Civil Defence Flag

The flag is orange with white canton and in the canton the coat of arms of the organization. The motto (on the shield): "Listos en paz o emergencia" (Ready on Peace and Emergency). The flag is described in a document in their site <www.defensacivil.gov.co>.
Carlos Thompson, 30 May 2003

The description of the flag: "Is a rectangle divided in four equal parts, the upper left rectangle is white and in its center is the coat of arms of the Institution, and the reminded parts are orange.  The white represents peace and the orange emergency."
Carlos Thompson, 2 June 2003

The organization has updated its symbols. There are a new Coat of Arms (see here) featuring the insular domains of the country (that is San Andrés); new logo (see here) that is used as alternate Coat of Arms, and a new flag, which  is the same color pattern of an orange flag with a white rectanlge on the canton and the Coat of Arms on it.
The explanation of the symbols is found on page 4 of this PDF document found on their official website.
The structure of the Defensa Civil as it currently operates today is basically defined by Decree No. 2341 of 1971, operating under the Ministry of National Defence.
Further information can be found at Defensa Civil Colombiana (official website).
