Introduction

According to [alv86], in 1810, following the Argentinian independence and the separation of the Province of Paraguay from the Viceroyalty of Río de la Plata, Paraguay claimed its independence, and on May 14, 1811, Fulgencio Yegros, Pedro Juan Caballero, Vicente Ignacio Iturbe and José Gaspar Rodríguez de Francia deposed the last Spanish governor, Bernardo Velazco. On June 17, 1811, the Congress named a junta presided by Yegros, which formally proclaimed the independence. The junta governed until 1813 when the republic was declared.

During the First Congress of June 17, 1811, three different arangements of tri-colors were widely displayed in Asuncion. Beside the red, white and blue flag favored by Dr. Francia, the red-yellow-blue and green-white-blue flags were quite popular. All of them expressed sentiments of independence and freedom.
