New Flag

Presidencia site report the departmental flag as seen below (Previous Flag, ed.).

My Spanish is not the best, but the description of the flag at <www.colciencias.gov.co> does not really match the reported image (Previous Flag, ed.). There's no image though.

You're correct. It describe a horizontal tri-color, green-white-blue, with a red diagonal band (per bend or per bend sinister, not detailed) with the Guaviare flower at the center. I assume it to be 3:2. Here is the most probable representation with a gray square where the flower should stand. Notice that this site is of or just preceding 1997 because it refers to the proposed Department divisions.  Could this be a former flag or an official flag that was later changed and never was hoisted?

4 Departments or states of my country have new flag designs. Those are. Guainia, Guaviare, Vaupes and Amazonas. The flag of Guaviare is with three stripes green, white and blue, in the center of the white stripe there is a mid sun in violet with 16 rays in blue.

I have recently found a site for the Governorship of Guaviare, Colombia at <www.guaviare.gov.co>, and the flag they display is the reported Previous Flag. In the site there is also a picture of the Guaviare Flower (Flor del Guaviare) and a cleared Coat of Arms.
