Overview

Astrea is a municipality in Cesar Department. It was founded by a farmer named Martín Mier Barbosa in 1936. On 26 November 1984 Astrea segregated from Chimichagua and became a municipality by Ordinance 013 of 1984.
The flag of Astrea is shown at wikipedia and described at the municipal web site as horizontally divided green-red-yellow. However, the image at the municipal web site show is charged with the municipal emblem. As common in Colombia, both variants are, probably, in use.

The emblem is horizontally divided in three fields.
The upper field shows a green landscape with two palms, whose leaves have been used to roof the houses of the village since its foundation, under a blue sky lit by a rising sun representing the rebirth of the municipality.
The middle field shows on a red background, symbolizing the strength of the villagers, a black and white bull, recalling that cattle breeding is the main source of income of the municipality, flanked by two corn ears, reprsenting the main crop of the municipality.
The lower field shows on a green background the face of Astraea, the goddess of justice, surmonting eleven yellow six-pointed stars symbolizing the evelen days from eleven months in the year on which the patron festivals are celebrated.
The "chief" of the emblem is green with the yellow writing "REMANSO DE PAZ Y PUJANZA" (Reserve of Peace and Power).
The shield is surrounded by a green-red-yellow ribbon, recalling the flag, tied below the shield, with a green central part, bearing the vertical writing "ASTREA", flanked by two lateral yellow parts, bearing the vertical writings "ABRIL 12" and "1936", respectively.
In the Greek mythology, Astraea, the daughter of Zeus and Themis, is a personification of justice and the last of the deities to live with the humans during the Iron Age. The allegory of justice is often reprsented with an eye-band as a symbol of impartiality.
