Did you know that between 1821-1831 a state was formed called Gran Colombia which encompassed present day colombia, venezuela, ecuador, panama, northern peru, western guyana and northwest brazil. This state formed to create independence from Spain. Simon Bolivar was president who in these 10 years fought to give each country its individual independence by 1831. Bogota was the capital of Gran Colombia and is still capital of colombia today. Colombia is 3rd largest country after Brazil and Argentina
