Infantry and Artillery - Infantry and artillery units carry
the national flag, 90 x 145 cm, with the coat of arms on the
center and, inscribed on the upper blue stripe the words DIOS
UNION LIBERTAD [God, Union, Liberty] and on the lower the type
and number of the unit, all in gold. The staff is 250 cm
long and 4 cm in diameter, with a gold-colored rhomboid
lance-head, edged on the sides and at the point. [Below the
lance-head, two blue and white streamers are attached, but I'm
not sure of the specific design.]. There is only one artillery
regiment in the SV army.
Cavalry - Cavalry units carry the same flag, but with the inscriptions in silver.
