The plain tricolour certainly does legally exist (whether or
not anybody bothers to fly it) by the Law of 5 December 1900 (as
published in 'Registro Oficial' No.1272).

This is a clip from Wikipedia about a official decree of
Ecuador clarifying the use of the flag:
"The law of 5 December 1900 (Registro Oficial No. 1272) specifies that Ecuador's civil flag and ensign are different from its state flag and ensign in that the state flags are charged with Ecuador's coat of arms whereas the civil flags are not. However, in practice the state flag is often used as a civil flag, especially where this is necessary to distinguish it from the flag of Colombia, which is similar but of different proportions."
