The flag of Colombia was adopted on November 26, 1863. It is a
horizontal tricolour of yellow, blue and red. The yellow stripe takes
up the top half of the flag and the blue and red take up a quarter of
the space each.
The current flag of Colombia is yellow, blue and red. The flag's
original pattern was first created by Francisco de Miranda for
Venezuela, later adopted for Gran Colombia after Simon Bolivar and
others helped its constituent nations attain independence.
