Overview

Anapoima is in Tequendama Province, Cundinamarca.
Felipe Carrillo, 12 April 2002

Here is the decree about the flag of Anapoima in Spanish:
"Acuerdo 012 de Abril 24 del 2000
Por medio del cual se adoptan los Símbolos Municipales de Anapoima - Escudo y Bandera
Artículo Tercero: Adóptense los colores municipales de Anapoima (Cundinamarca), amarillo oro y verde esmeralda, distribuidos en el pabellón municipal en dos franjas horizontales iguales; la franja superior en color amarillo oro, la franja inferior en color verde esmeralda, con el escudo insertado en la parte central de la bandera."
This document is not defining length and scale.  Here we have the original flag (without Coat of Arms) and the
flag descripted in the document (Flag with Coat of Arms).
Jairo Alonso Méndez Méndez, 20 March 2004

From <www.cundinamarca.gov.co>:
"Compuesta por dos franjas: amarilla y verde. Sus colores significan lo siguiente:
Amarillo: la riqueza del suelo de su regi?n y el brillo del sol de la "Eterna Juventud",
Eslogan que acu?aron para el municipio.
Verde esmeralda: la fertilidad y esplendor de las tierras, la esperanza de un pueblo pujante y floreciente. "
Felipe Carrillo, 20 November 2004

Before 2000, (the date when the flag and the coat of arms of Anapoima were officialized), the flag of Anapoima was the same as the current one, but they didn't have a Coat of Arms so they used a logotype with the inscription: "Anapoima Cundinamarca".
Jairo Alonso Méndez Méndez, 15 March 2005

In 1968, Professor Francisco Álvaro Garzón Vásquez (deceased in 2008), hoists a flag, composed by two colors, yellow and green, in a horizontal bi-stripe design. The flag was seen in sport events in Tequendama Province.
This flag is the origin of the flag of Anapoima.

Flag with Coat of Arms

This is the flag of Anapoima (Cundinamarca) - my native city - with a variation that includes in the center the coat of arms, this variation is the one that is hoisted at the Government Building, and is useful to differentiate it from other similar flags in Cundinamarca, like those of Chia and Tocancipá, other flags that uses the "yellow and green" with the same reviewed design.
