Colombian Football Federation (Federacion Colombiana de Futbol)

image by Eugene Ipavec, 25 August 2005

I found this flag of the Federación Colombiana de Fútbol (official website at: <>) which is the official Colombian Sport institution in charge of all national soccer teams. It was established, shut down and it later merged with other national soccer associatoins to be finally set up in its "current version" in 1971. For more historical background check (in Spanish) <>. Regarding its symbols, you can reach them at <>. The flag is plain white with the symbol in the center.

The colors in the TV screenshots were a bit washed out--I took the football to be beige.
Eugene Ipavec, 11 August 2005

From the pictures it seems that the soccer ball is beige (instead of red, as the logo shows).

This is the flag of the DIMAYOR (División Mayor del Fútbol Colombiano, or Colombian Soccer Major Division in English). The DIMAYOR was established on June 27, 1948, right when professional soccer was established in Colombia. At first it included only the professional soccer clubs (First Division teams only) but it currently includes both First and Second Division teams. DIMAYOR changed its name to Asociación de Clubes del Fútbol Profesional Colombiano, but it kept
the abbreviatoin DIMAYOR for reference and identification purposes. The First Division is called Primera A, and the Second Division is called Primera B.
The flag should be the emblem on white background. A variant of the flag is the same emblem but on yellow background (the yellow color.

Official Flag of one of the two most popular soccer team in Colombia: Atletico Nacional (Nacional de Medellin).
Felipe Carrillo, 14 March 2003

Atlético Nacional describes a flag in their website: <>, using the colors of Antioquia but green over white.  Green stands for hope, nature and the Antioquian mountains, while white means peace, clarity, honesty and liberty.

The newspaper El Pais reports in its digital edition dated 18 December 2005 that the football club Deportivo Cali, won its eight star (championship). A picture illustrating the article shows supporters waving a green flag with a big white star.
Ivan Sache, 25 December 2005

The Colombian Soccer team is officially called Asociación Deportivo Cali, better known as Depor Cali, or Super Depor (the nick Super Depor is related to the Spanish First Division Club Deportivo La Coruña, because like the Spanish club, the Deportivo Cali is not on the top of the list but it always obtains good results and plays good soccer). The official website of the team is at <>. The team was founded on January 16, 1943 and it plays in the City of Cali (or officially called Santiago de Cali), the capital of the Department of Valle (or Valle del Cauca, its official name). This team is actually the first Colombian soccer team that can be truly called a club, with stockholders and it is building its own Stadium as well, another country's first (<>)
the flag with the star is not an official flag. The official flag is the same flag as the Departamento de Antioquia (see <>) only the colors are inverted: that is green on top and white on the bottom.

Deportivo Los Millonarios (Bogota)

At the site of Millonarios (Bogota) at <>, there is a photo where you can see a blue over white flag with the shield in the middle.  I am not sure if this flag is official in any sence.
Carlos Thompson, 18 March 2003

Felipe Carrillo sent a diagonaly divided flag. I am not sure if this flag is official.  In the web site of the club, <>, there is a picture , I am not sure but it seems that the flag is B-W horizontal.  In the homepage there is a picture of the public with a big B-W-B banner.
Looking at the sites of some supporters I have found the following site: <>.  I guess that the black-blue flags are flags of the supporting group "Comandos Aziles" rather than flags of the team.  I can see both per fess N-B and quartered B-N-N-B, also a chekered blue-white falg, a plain blue flag with the CoA of the team and the city, a frew W-B-W horizontal tribands and a big W-B-W with a Y-R border in the bottom. The last picture, with the red and white flags, are supporters of Santafe, the rival team.
In another supporting website <>, there is a nice picture of Gardfield dress as a Millonarios supporter, with a W-B horizontal flag with the shield of the team.
This site further says (translated by me): The Club is represented by its colors blue and white which form its flag in that exact order in equal-zised horizontal bands, a shied that we can see in the attached picture and its beautiful anthem."
As I read the "official" flag should be blue on top.

Official Flag of one of the two most popular soccer team in Colombia: Independendiente Santa Fe (Bogota).
Felipe Carrillo, 14 March 2003

In the official web site of the Club Independiente Santa Fe, this red over white flag is described: <>.  There is no meaning about the colors, except that those are the colors of the Club/Team.
