"Fundación Universitaria del Área
Andina" was founded in 1994 in Pereira, Department of
Risaralda. It is made of the Faculty of Health Sciences, Faculty
of Administration, Marketing and Design, and Faculty of Law,
Social and Human Sciences.
The website of the institute shows a photo of a table flag of the institute, horizontally divided green-white, with the emblem of the university "superimposed". The emblem clearly does not exist on this particular flag but was added subsequently to the image, therefore it is not possible to conclude about the existence of a flag with the emblem.
