Overview

Translated from <www.zapatoca.com>:
"THE FLAG
It was adopted by the Council of Zapatoca by means of agreement. N° 014 of 1983, after being chosen from among 62 proposals, by a jury of Mario Acevedo Diaz, Luis Aurelio Diaz Orejarena, Norberto Serrano Gómez and the President of the Maestro Council Gustavo Gómez Ardila.
It consists of three horizontal strips of equal width; the upper one is white symbolizing the peace and tranquillity that is permeates Zapatoca; the middle one is green representing nature and the work as a symbol of the labours of Zapatoca; the lower one is yellow symbolizing the wealth of the region and the soul of the Zapatocans.
THE SHIELD
It was adopted by means of agreement N° 004 of 1993 by the Council of Zapatoca.
The shield is divided into two fields, blue or the color of the sky, symbolizing the tranquillity, light, peace and riches that rule in our land.
These areas are divided by a diagonal stripe that represents the nobility of blood of Zapatocans. This stripe is crowned by a gold star that recalls the patron saint of the city.
In field on the right is a torch that represents the great men and women that through the years have given prestige to Zapatoca as an intellectual city.
In the field on the left is an anvil that symbolizes the effort and constancy of the work of Zapatocans.
The silver frame symbolizes the nobility and solidarity of the Zapatocans, since even poorest without a home has San Vicentico, the elderly in the Hogar San Antonio y Ocaso and the orphans the Hogar San José. This frame is crowned by three Greek crosses recalling the bishops and more than one hundred priests and nuns born in this town that deserves the name of "Holy City" given to it by Don Marco Fidel Suárez.
The motto "LABOR OMNIA VINCIT", a Latin proverb, tells how the work and effort of the Zapatocans have triumphed more than other cities of greater status. "Work overcomes all"."
