Sucumbíos is a province in the northern area of Ecuador, and
belongs to Amazonica region. It was created on 11 Febuary 1989
out of Napo province. The capital is Nueva Loja. This flag is the
same flag of Aran but in Ratio 1:2 (blue over white over green);
it is also the reverse of the provincial flag of Galapagos.
The flag which I reported, was first reported by Prof.
Restrepo Uribe who saw it hoisted in the main square of Quito and
later reproduced in several vex bulletins. Then we can assume
that the flag was changed later.
