Procuraduría General de la Nación (Advocate General of the Nation)


image by Eugene Ipavec, 25 August 2005

The Procuraduría General de la Nación represents the citizens before the State. It currently has around 3,400 employees and its mission is to oversee the proceedures of the State, abiding by the laws and the functions it has according to the 1991 Political Constitution. Its main three goals are: 1. Preventive function: this goal is directed towards "alerting" instead of "punishing", watching over government employees. 2. Intervention function: this is oriented towards defending the rights on behalf of any Colombian authority (religious, military, governmental, judiciary, police, civil, agricultural or any other kind). 3. Disciplinary function: this goal is focused on the sanctions carried out by violations of one or multiple individuals who, in office, have carried out improper activities as government officials.
The flag is the logo with the Colombian Coat of Arms (without the motto) on white background.
E. R., 30 May and 25 August 2005

The Procuraduría General de la Nación (Advocate General of the Nation) has a variant official flag, which is the same horizontal background flag with the logo and the name of the entity, as seen in this picture:

image by Eugene Ipavec, 8 March 2006

This is the flag of Registraduría Nacional del Estado Civil (Civil State National Registry). Official website at www.registraduria.gov.co. This government body is in charge of registring all civilians, give them their ID's, pass laws regardig these subjects to Congress, classify and file these information, and also manage the Consejo Nacional Electoral (National Election Council, abbreviated CNE, official website at www.cne.gov.co). At the same time the CNE is in charge of all matters related to the election process in Colombia. The flag of the Registraduría (as it is commonly known), is a green over white flag (internal ratio 1:1) , pretty much like the flag of the Department of La Guajira, but the shade of green resembles more that of the flag of the Department of Antioquia, plus the Coat of Arms on the center.

On August 6, 2008, in a news broadcast by local channel RCN an additional flag of the Civil State National Registry was seen. The flag is the same as the one reported previously, the only difference being that this variant has the name of the government organization below the CoA, as "REGISTRADURIA" on black capital letters, and in smaller capital letters "NACIONAL DEL ESTADO CIVIL" in black as well.

There is one more difference, namely that the order of stripes. Flag reported previously is green over white, but flag on attached picture seems to be white over green.

SENA - Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje (National Service of Education)

The SENA flag is the logo on white background. The logo is composed of a cogwill (which symbolizes the industry as an economic sector, a caduceus, which stands for commerce and the coffe grain, which represents the primary or agricultural sector).

Sistema Nacional para la Prevención y Atención de Desastres (National System for the Prevention and Attention of Disasters)


image by Randy Young, 04 February 2015

The SINPAD (or SNPAD) (Sistema Nacional para la Prevención y Atención de Desastres) (National System for the Prevention and Attention of Disasters), established in 1988 was adopted as the Plataforma Nacional (National Platform) for the reduction of disaster risk, according to UNISDR (United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction) guidelines, before the conferencie World Conference on Disaster Reduction in Kobe in 2005. The DGPAD is the coordinating office for the implementation of the SNPAD and it operates supported on two committees:
1. Comité Técnico Nacional (National Technical Committee), which are the different committees and agencies (public, private and civilian) within each Ministry, in charge of the prevention and handling of disasters and there are also specific technical commissions (offices) in charge of specific risks, such as the SIGPAD (Sistema Nacional de Información para la Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres, National Information System for the Management of Disasters Risk) ( official website), RSNC (Red Sismológica Nacional de Colombia, Colombian National Seismic Network) ( official website), SIRH (Sistema de Información del Recurso Hídrico, Hidraulic Resource Information System (official website), SIAC (Sistema de Información Ambiental para Colombia, Environmental Information System for Colombia) ( official website, SISAIRE (Sistema de Información de Calidad del Aire, Air Quality Information System) ( official website), SIIF (Sistema Integrado de Información Financiera, Financial Information Integrated System) ( official website), SIAT-AC (Sistema de Información Ambiental Territorial-Amazonía Colombiana, Territorial Environmental Information System-Colombian Amazon) ( official website), CCE (Comisión Colombiana del Espacio, Space Colombian Commission) ( official website) and IDEAM (Instituto de Hidrología, Metereología y Estudios Ambientales, Hidraulics, Meteorology and Environmental Studies Institute) ( official website)
2. Comité Operativo Nacional (National Operational Committee), which is executed by the Defensa Civil.

The actions are coordinated through Comités Regionales (CREPAD's, Comités Regionales de Prevención y Atención de Desastres, Regional Committees on Prevention and Handling of Disasters) and Comités Locales (CLOPAD's, Comités Locales de Prevención y Atención de Desastres, Local Committees on Prevention and Handling of Disasters).

The SNPAD evolves into the SNGRD (Sistema Nacional de Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres, Disaster Risk Management National System), established by Law 1523 of April 24, 2012 and in turn, the  DGPAD evolves into the UNGRD (Unidad Nacional para la Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres, Disaster Risk Management National Unit) through Decree No. 4147 of November 3, 2011). The SNIGRD (Sistema Nacional de Información para la Gestión del Riesgo de Desastres, Disaster Risk Management National Information System) is the actual materialization of all this frameowrk of cooperation and coordination that the SNGRD comprises.

There's photographic evidence that two flags exist regarding this topic (that is the SNGRD and the UNGRD), which suggests that the SNGRD  (which used to be called SNPAD) has also its own flag even though it is not an organization per se, which features this logo on a blue horizontal flag, as seen in this picture in which the blue flag is seen, along with the UNGRD flag (on the right).

It is a white horizontal flag with the logo in the middle.
There's photographic evidence that two flags exist regarding this topic (that is the SNGRD and the UNGRD), which suggests that the SNGRD  (which used to be called SNPAD) has also its own flag even though it is not an organization per se, which features this logo on a blue horizontal flag, as seen in this picture in which the blue flag is seen, along with the UNGRD flag (on the right).
