I have just received from the Government of Cundinamarca a book that deals with on the shields and flags of this department. This book is called "Shields, Flags and Hymns of Cundinamarca", written by Rosalba Salazar Gallo for the Secretariat of Culture of Cundinamarca. I reviewed it, and above is Sesquile flag.

From <www.cundinamarca.gov.co>:
"Conformada por tres franjas horizontales de igual tamano utilizando los colores verde agua, dorado y blanco hueso.
Franja superior: verde, representa el agua de la laguna del Cacique Guatavita, el verde de los cultivos y el campo.
Franja media: dorado, recuerda la leyenda de El Dorado y los rituales Muiscas.
Franja inferior: blanca, la riqueza salinera antiguamente explotada en el municipio."
