Administrative division

Colombia is divided into 32 departments and one capital district, which is treated as a department. Departments are subdivided into municipalities, and municipalities are in turn subdivided into corregimientos in rural areas and into comunas in urban areas.

In addition to the capital four other cities have been designated districts (in effect special municipalities), on the basis of special distinguishing features. These are Barranquilla, Cartagena, Santa Marta and Buenaventura.

Heraldry

Most departments use arms, some use a logo. Also, most municipalities use arms.
