According to <www.todacolombia.com>:
Black stripe stands for petroleum ("black gold"), main
wealth of Putumayo. White is for calm nature of Putumayense
people. Green is for forests that cover 4/5 of area.
At <www.putumayenses.com.co>, the order of colors is reversed.

Putumayo Department website it shows
two versions of the flag: a plain flag as reported and a flag charged with the coat of arms.
The description doesn't mention the coat of arms.
