Quibdó is the capital of Choco Department. From the Coat of Arms and headline colors at <>, its flag is green over red.

The Coat of Arms gave an impression that the flag is green over red. However it is green-red-coffee (2:1:1) as seen at:   <>.

Translated from that site: Green (1/2) stands for the tropical forest that surounds the municipality and the ecological wealth that makes it a lung for mankind. Red (1/4) means the blood spilled by our ancestors in the liberty fight. Brown (1/4) is a tribute to Quindo's patron saint, St Francis of Asis [I could guess that it is the color of the custom of the Franciscan order].

Brown is the colour of the habit worn by the monk's of the Order of St Francis of Assisi..
