About the flag

Album 2000 [pay00] shows a white flag with white border, in the middle the national emblem and in each corner a yellow Sun. As far as I am aware, this is the first representation of the presidential flag with the white border. I guess that this is a recent development.

As of 1995?

In Album 1995 [pie95] The elements of the flag are much larger then in Album 2000 [pay00], especially the suns (6-pointed) that unproportionally larger and not allowing for any border. In my opinion, whole this image is errorneous, it doesn’t look anything like flags reported earlier ([smi75], [neu92]) nor latter ([pay00]).

Pres. Flag 1939

Flaggenbuch [neu39] shows a 2:3 white flag with the national emblem in the middle and four yellow Suns. The relative dimensions are given, overall proportions 20:30; emblem size 10:10 in the middle of the flag, and the center of each Sun is 5 units from both closest edges. If Album 2000 [pay00] is correct, this is slightly changed nowdays.

As of 1917

Natn’l Geo.1917 [gmc17] says:

502. Ensign and President. 2:3

Usage of the ensign as presidential flag is notable.

Photo of current president of Peru with presidential sash can be seen here.
But here you can see that in history presidential sash was without coat of arms.

A portrait of current Peruvian President Alan García, is seen in this photograph, wearing the Presidential Sash, with the coat of arms. In the Presidential Sash, the coat of arms has the laurel wreaths in gold, rather than green. The picture is seen here.
Image is located on this website (on the left you can see Peruvian President Alejandro Toledo wearing the Presidential Sash, white/red colors (50/50 proportion).

Interesting to notice, is that in Peru the President wears a Presidential Sash (hanging) while its Ministers wear a band around the waist, as seen in the following pictures:
