Overview

The image is based on Gaceta de Banderas 15, "Simbolos Patrios" Gobernación de Caldas, Secretaríade Educación Departamental.

I must stress that this source is a poor indicator of the actual proportions of the municipal flags. Some flags are just annexed to the Coat of Arms in a square proportion. Two of these flags were presented previously in a 2:1 proportion.  Many of these flags could be such.  I think it will be wise to place a note that indicates that the true proportions of these flags could be 2:1 also.

From <www.gobernaciondecaldas.gov.co>:
"La Bandera - Es en rectángulo de 1,35 metros de ancho por 1,80 de largo, dividido longitudinalmente en tres fajas de igual dimensión (0,45 de ancho cada una): la superior de color amarillo; la intermedia de color blanco; y la inferior de color verde. Fue escogida en concurso abierto por la "Sociedad de Mejoras Públicas" y adoptada por la Alcaldía Municipal mediante el decreto No. 128 del 4 de octubre de 1955."

Considering that "Riosucio" (or rather "río sucio") means "dirty river" I may wonder that the black triangle may stand also for something else...
