shows the official Peruvian flags 1820-22,
1822-25 (both national and military flags),

When started the Peruvian Constituent Asembly in 1825, a
new national flag was proposed. Five
projects were presentated, but Bolivar rejected all them.
Only a minor change was made: the red
sun in the center was changed to national
arms. In 1838 General Santa Cruz created the
Peruvian-Bolivian Confederation, in which
Peru entered as two entities: North Peru (under the
flag of 1825),
and South Peru (with a new flag). In
1839, General Santa Cruz was overthrown and the flag of 1825 was
re-established for the whole country.
