This is the first flag of the Federal Republic of Greater Peru from the ouster of Supreme Protector Marshal Andres de Santa Cruz until the admission of the first Ecuadorian province as a state of the republic after annexation in 1860. Red and white are from the original Peruvian flag and represent the blood spilled for independence and the snow-capped Andes. Green and god from the original Bolivian flag and represent the wealth of the nation and the Amazonian resources beyond the Andes. The three stars are the three formative republics North Peru, Bolivia a.k.a. Alto Peru, and South Peru. The Sun disk represents the Incan god Inti for the history of the Peruvian nation before the Spaniards.
