Introduction

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 sun in the center was changed to national arms.

First proposal

This was the old flag in horizontal stripes, but the central white stripe vertical divised in two parts, blue at hoist and white at fly; in the blue 8 roses (one for each province), a flamme, and sun. The colours of the roses, sun and flamme were not quoted by J. G. Fuentes [fueXX].

The second one is similar to the first but green instead blue, without flamme, and stars instead roses; also the colors are not quoted. This one influenced the South Peruvian flag.
