Columbia is a university in New York city, the capital city of South Carolina, the western Canada cost, a Canadian rockies ice field, a sportswear brand. But… the name of one of the most beautiful and happy countries located in South America, known for its wonderful coffee and flowers It’s COLOMBIA, not Columbia!
Colombia name has been misspelled too many times around the world. This is something that Colombians do not appreciate at all. A couple years ago a very creative social media campaign was created, by an agency in Bogotá. The objective was “to get people around the world saying Colombia’s name correctly, but also to show the good our country has to offer like music, flowers, coffee, biodiversity and most importantly more than forty millions of happy and welcoming people trying to make a difference.”
I’m confident that none of you would need to be corrected when spelling my country’s name. So Please Remember
It’s COLOMBIA, not Columbia!
