Concerning books on Bolivian flag History, I got the impression that Alquizaleth [vzz83] Calderón & Cortéz [a2d01] conflict in several aspects, the later being perhaps more reliable.

J. G. Fuentes [fue75] shows the variants of the Bolivian flag 1825-26, the Bolivian monochrome official flags 1854-55 and the arms of Bolivia 1888-c1900 and since c1900.

According to [mch85a], the flag with its present order of stripes was introduced in 1851 but a number of variations had been used since Bolivia gained independence in 1825.

Changes in the coat of arms means, that the flag was a little bit different, too.

However, it is not certain that each change on the coat of arms caused an equivalent change on the contemporary flag — either by law or use.
