On <www.explored.com.ec> you find information about the Ecuadorian provinces, including their flags and coat of arms. For Sucumbios is shown a flag in horizontal green-white-yellow, contrary to the Previously Reported Flag (blue, white, green).

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.
