The yellow stripe represents the gold and other natural resources of Colombia, the blue represents the seas and the sky, and the red represents the blood of those who fought for independence. The colours of the flag are also said to be inspired by the colours of the cockade of the United Provinces of New Granada, which were red, blue, and yellow.
The flag was officially adopted on 26 November 1861, but had been used unofficially since 20 July 1810, the date of the Declaration of Independence.
