National symbols

The upper half of the national flag is yellow and the lower half is horizontally striped blue over red. The national flag also bears the national coat of arms in the middle of the flag.

The coat of arms is – last changed slightly in 1955 – the coat of arms of New Granada created in 1834. It shows a pomegranate between two horns of plenty (the heraldic right one with gold coins, the left one with fruit), in the beam a Phrygian cap on a spearhead (symbol for the freedom struggle against Spanish colonial rule) as well as in the foot of the shield the isthmus of Panama and two sailing ships. The top coat of arms is an Andean condor with a green laurel wreath in its beak and a banner with the motto “Libertad y Orden” (freedom and order) in its claws.

The national holiday is July 20th. It commemorates the proclamation of independence in 1810. Check beautypically to see Colombia Is a Natural Destination.

Parties

The most influential parties and movements are the Partido Liberal Colombiano (PLC; founded 1848), the Partido Social de Unidad Nacional (Partido de la U; founded 2005), the Partido Conservador Colombiano (PCC; founded 1849), the Centro Democrático (CD; founded 2013), the Partido Cambio Radical (CR; founded 1998), the Polo Democrático Alternativo (PDA; created in 2004 through the merger of Polo Democrático Independiente and Alternativa Democrática) and the Partido de Integración Nacional (PIN; founded 1997, until 2009 Convergencia Ciudadana).

Tourism

Colombia has great tourist potential. The number of foreign guests rose from 162,000 (1970) to 1.23 million (1980), fell again to 787,000 (2001), mainly due to increasing uncertainty in the country, and reached around 2.6 million in 2016. Most visitors come from neighboring countries as well as the USA.

The main attractions are the Caribbean coast including the Isla de San Andrés in the Caribbean Sea, the pre-Columbian sites in the highlands (especially San Agustín), the walled Cartagena from the 16th century and the capital Bogotá.

Transportation

Since the three mountain ranges of the Andes make it difficult to expand the road and rail network, air traffic is particularly important for passenger transport. The importance of the railways, which had declined sharply due to the neglect of the track systems and the machinery, has been on the rise since 2013; the route network used is being expanded. The main roads run through the valley of the Río Cauca and the Río Magdalena. The creation of cross-connections across the Cordilleras presented greater difficulties. The construction of the Carretera Panamericana (Panamerican Highway), which runs from the border with Panama to Quito (Ecuador), has not yet been completed. Well-developed roads connect Cali with the main port of Buenaventura and Bogotá with the important industrial city of Medellín. About 50% of imports and exports go through the Pacific port of Buenaventura. Other important seaports are Santa Marta, Barranquilla and Cartagena on the Caribbean coast. The port of Puerto Bolívar on the La Guajira peninsula, completed in 1986, is growing in importance. Inland navigation is operated on the Río Magdalena from Puerto Barrio to Barranquilla (1,500 km). There are also shipping possibilities in the Orinoco (2,560 km) and Amazon systems (3,560 km). International airports include in Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Barranquilla, Cartagena and on the Isla de San Andrés.
