Approximately between 1821 and 1822, a tri-band flag: blue

independence fighters. The blue bands symbolized the two oceans,
and the yellow - golden America.
Jaume Olle, 26 August 1996
Used September1821-May 1822 and from 10 May to 6 June 1823.
This flag was against the union with Mexico. Perhaps used in the
Mexican domination 1822-23.
