In 1851 the flag of today was
introduced, the coat of arms being modified
(once again) in 1888.07.14, thus being the
introduction date of all sources.

The book Wappen und Flaggen aller Nationen, by Smith and Neubecker [smi81g], at the chapter about the flag of Libya is a little notice about unicolour-flags:
Thow there are several examples of one-coloured national flags in history, for example
I never heard before of a green flag of Bolivia and couldn’t find infos about this on line or the little books I bought in Bolivia about the national flag. (I only know, that the Bolivian department of Beni has a green flag.)

shows the variants of the Bolivian flag
the Bolivian monochrome official flags 1854-55
and the arms of Bolivia 1888-c1900 and since c1900.

The very same coat-of-arms in a quite different
background shows on a flag plate apparently from 1888. Earlier than
that variation postcard but nevertheless younger
than the current flag of Bolivia. The flag
shown of the flag plate is a “spanish” triband of white-red-white
with the arms centered on a white disc.

This image is obviousely a mistake in the plate. They changed the
upper and lower stripe from the original colors to white and the size
of the stripes seems 3:4:3 instead the correct 2:4:2 (spanish pattern).
The sun and the llama are missing except for some maroon part visible
that probably must be the llama, and also are missing other devices
except the palm (which must be an árbol del pán).
