Overview

War started in Cauca against the central goverment. Leader of revolt was T.C. Mosquera that want to more power for his region, Cauca, the greatest in the country. Mosquera won (take Bogota 18 July 1861) and obtain the presidency of the confederacy  (1860-63). The constitution of Rionegro was established and gave more power to states. National flag and merchant ensign were altered by decree of 26 July 1861 (source: Flagmaster). Restrepo has his opinion that only the merchant ensign was changed since the decree quote "nuevo pabellon...." (new ensign...) or perhaps it was an attempt to merge both flags into a single one. Reconstruction of this flag is different from Flagmaster and Restrepo. Stars points are not quoted and Flagmaster use 5 pointed stars , and  Restrepo 8 pointed.
