Editorial note: Find below links to independentist flags from the early 19th century used in the region of La Plata, which played a major role in the flag history of three independent countries which later arose in that area: Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay. By all means, these are not the only relevant pre-independence flags of these countries, but are those whose effect straddles across nowdays’ borders. (Find other local historical flags also linked bellow.)
The real origin of all these flags (as also its very design) is severely obfuscated bt myth and legend, in spite of (or maybe because of) it’s relative modernness and high popularity. Even the synopsis above may contain many mistakes.
