Learn Why is Colombia Misspelled 70% of the Time?
 

You might wonder what compels many to write so emphatically the name of our country. Well, no less than seventy five percent of the letters, faxes and e-mails that we receive, are usually addressed to the Embassy of "ColUmbia".

The confusion comes from the difference in spelling in English and Spanish of the name of the discoverer of America, Italian Cristoforo Colombo (Christopher Columbus), the person after whom our country is named. In Spanish we spell his name "Cristobal Colón", and it is only natural for us to spell our country's name "Colombia". For English speakers, and in particular for U.S. residents, it is only natural to spell our name with a "U", after all, that is the spelling of the city in South Carolina, the Nation's Capital, the prestigious University in New York, and  many cities in the States of Maryland, Indiana, Oregon and Florida among others. However, please do not forget that our official name is "The Republic of Colombia"
