Ecuadorian National Garcian Phalanx

[Flag of Ecuadorian National Garcian Phalanx]
image by Tomislav Todorović, 10 July 2013

Ecuadorian National Garcian Phalanx /(Falange Nacional Garciana Ecuatoriana)/ was a minor short-lived Phalangist group from Ecuador, whose existence seems to have been recorded only in a list of Latin American Phalangist movements which was available at the site of The Phalanx /(La Falange)/, a minor Phalangist party ffrom Spain. Although no link to a website of theirs was given there, an e-mail address was given instead, so the flag image must have been based on info obtained through a direct contact with the Ecuadorian source. The flag was a blue-red-blue vertical triband with black yoke and arrows on red field. While the general design was derived from the flag of Spanish Phalanx, the color set is peculiar by its inclusion of blue, which was certainly chosen as the flag of Phalangist shirts, thus producing a flag with unique design, but still easily recognizable as a Phalangist symbol.

Partido Sociedad Patriótica 21 de Enero

On August 4, former Ecuadorian President Lucio Gutiérrez was shown on the Colombian TV news channel RCN. On the background one can see the flag (on his right side) of the Partido Sociedad Patriótica (PSP), later renamed Partido Sociedad Patriótica 21 de Enero (January 21 Patriotic Society Party).
This political party is led by his brother, Gilmar Gutierrez and it is based on a protest carried out against the government of then President Jamil Mahuad on January 21, 2000.
