E.L.P. flag

Chilean flag apparently used by the Expedición Libertadora al Perú in 1820. This expedition was led by San Martin to obtain the independence of Peru. Navy commander of the expedition was the famous Lord Cochrane. This flag is a variant of the Chilean National Flag, but it has 3 stars in the canton, instead of the normal one. I do not know too many details about this flag, but the 3 stars are supposed to represent Chile, Argentina and Peru, because the Ejército Libertador (San Martin’s Army) was formed by people from the three countries. But I am not sure about this flag.
