When started the Peruvian Constituent Asembly in 1825, a new national flag was proposed. Five projects were presentated, but Bolivar rejected all them. Only a minor change was made: the red sun in the center was changed to national arms. In 1838 General Santa Cruz created the Peruvian-Bolivian Confederation, in which Peru entered as two entities: North Peru (under the flag of 1825), and South Peru (with a new flag). In 1839, General Santa Cruz was overthrown and the flag of 1825 was re-established for the whole country.
