Flag of may 1820

The first Peruvian flag was flown by general Miller in Tacna on 1820-05-14. William Bennet Stevenson, secretary of Lord Cochrane, refers in his reports that it was blue with the sun in the center. I have never seen this flag drawn so the image is a free creation based on the description. Image in Ratio 2:3.
