Political Flags in XIX Century

I found a copy of an article from the heraldist prince George Ypsilanti in 1943 in "Boletin de la Bibliotea y Archivo Nacional" Aņo III, nš 6, dated 31 Octuber 1943, where are quoted some XIX century party flags in Honduras. All party flags are described and theres 11 parties (according text from 1821 to 1943). All are bicolored or monocolored flags.
There are three parties that have well known flags:
The federal party has as flag the B-W-B horizontal that remained as national and that in 1821 was the one of the Federal Republic of Central America. The Nationalist party and Liberal party have same flags as today.
There are more parties that I need to search more on them:
- The Gasista (Colonial) Party
- The Peoples Party
- Cotorro Party (Guardiolist Party)
- Fiebres Party
- Policarpist Party
- Anexionist Party
- Separatist party
- Servil or Moderate party
According a presentation signed by Dr. Louis J. Joest, Ypsilanti was a great expert in heraldry and lived in Honduras (was living in 1943) Perhaps more articles from heraldry or vexillology were wrote by Ypsilanti in Honduras in the years around 1943.
