About the flag

In 1826 a new flag was introduced, but the tricolored was kept as an alternate flag. But when Dr [José Gaspar Rodríguez de] Francia died in 1840 all garrisons hoisted his blue flag and forgot about the triclored until 1842.

I am sorry to report, that after intensive research I failed to encounter the visual representation or even detailed description of the blue flag of Dr. Francia (1826).
