Cannabis flag

image by Tomislav Todorovic, 3 April 2022

During today's presidential debate ( and, held at Universidad Externado, one of the candidates, Luis Emilio Pérez Gutiérrez, displayed a Colombian tricolor with the cannabis plant on top, in the middle of the yellow stripe. His proposal is to declare this plant as the official leaf of the country and include it on the official flag.

Similar flags have appeared in recent years in different designs, mainly during demonstrations by advocates and users of this drug, but this is the first time that such a flag is displayed during a presidential debate, let alone by a former public official.
