Flag of Chocontá (Almeidas Province).
Jairo Alonso Méndez Méndez, 28 July 2004

From <>:
"Consta de dos franjas unidas de igual área, en sentido horizontal, de color blanco la primera y verde oscuro la segunda.
Blanco: significa el sentido pacífico de su gente y la motivación para vivir siempre en armonía.
Verde oscuro: significa la esperanza y un futuro mejor. Releva este color el verde de los campos.
En el centro, está inserto el escudo de armas del municipio."
Felipe Carrillo, 20 November 2004

Coat of Arms

image by Carlos Thompson, 21 December 2004

Translated from <>:
"An external and an internal golden circle with white between, in the upper part says in black letters "Leal y Noble Villa" and in the bottom "De Santiago de Chocontá".
In the center of the circles, in dark green field, a golden lace in circle shape and in the interior a golden cross, meaning the Catholic feith, on the lower vertical stroke a crimsom crown bordered golden meaning the Catholic King.
After the cross and the crown, bellow, the letters N and R and a pomegranate representing the Fatherland and the New Kingdom of Granada. Two fags held by respective black hoists based on the pomegranate.  One flag blue with a crimsom cross, and one flag white with a sea blue cross, meaning quiety and peace.  The hoists gorm a V inside a cross, the cron and the letters.
A brown wolf with the right hand embrasing the hoist of the blue flag, and a sword with silver blade and black handle, with the point upwards intercepts the lowe part of the white flag's hoist."
In short. one flag means quiety and the other peace.  And according to the description the white cross should actually be crimsom.
