I spotted the flag of the Ministerio Público (Public
Ministry), in an online article
According to website,
the Ministerio Público oversees all the Judicial System. However
when you see the Ministers
Cabinet, I don't see anywhere the "Ministerio
Público" listed there.
I know there was a Constitutional reform very recently, but the online version does not specify any Ministry, so there's the question of debate of whether the Ministerio Público still exists today or was modified into some other institution.

The flag is a white horizontal flag, with the
logo to the
hoist, below the initials MTOP in black capital letters, and right next to the
logo one can see the words MINISTERIO DE in black capital letters, then below
TRANSPORTE Y in black capital letters and below OBRAS PUBLICAS, also in black
capital letters, as seen on these images:

On July 31 I saw this
from the local newspaper
El Ciudadano showing three flags, from left to right: UFE 1,
Ecuador, UFE 2. Since the news was reported by the
newspaper in Quito, Pichincha
Province, I thought that one of the two UFE's might be of the city of
Quito, or the Pichincha
Province, but clearly it is not the case. The news was a conference by the
Ecuadorian Procurador (Ombudsman) regarding the process of money laundering in
Amsterdam, Netherlands. Then again, checked the
Amsterdam flag, and again, it does not match any of the two UFE's in the
picture mentioned above.
However, looking at the government entity mentioned in the article, Procuraduría General del Estado (States' General Ombudsman), its symbols do not match either of the two UFE's.
The Procuraduría has the following symbols:

Secretaria de Gestion de Riesgos (SNGR - Secretariat of Risk Management) is a
decentralized governmental organism in charge of the protection of people and
collectivities against the negative effects of disasters of natural or anthropogenic
origin, through the implementation of policies, strategies and norms.
Source: SNCR website
The flag of SNGR is white with the organism's emblem. Maybe different versions of the emblem coexist.
The emblem, featuring a seismographic record, recalls that the main risks in Ecuador are represented by earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.

"Superintendencia de Bancos y Seguros" (SUPERBAN) is
the organism in charge of the supervising of the bank operations
in Ecuador. After the proclamation of independence of the country
in 1830, a first Law on Currency of the Republic of Ecuador was
promulgated in 1832 to regulate currency minting. The Law on
Hypothecary Banks was passed in 1869, completed in 1899 by the Law
on the Banks, regulating the bank operations in the country.
An Executive Decree passed in 1914 created the office of Fiscal Commissioner of the Banks, in charge of the supervision of the banks, especially of printing and release of banknotes. A mission led by Pr. Edwin Walter Kemmerer (1875-1945, an economist from Princeton University known as the "Money Doctor") in 1925-1927 prompted the total revamping of the monetary system of Ecuador, which was made in 1927 with several new laws on banks and the management of public affairs. A part of the reform was the creation of the "Superintendencia de Bancos", set up on 6 September 1927.
The flag of SUPERBAN can be seen, partially, on different photos that allow a credible reconstruction of the flag. The flag is horizontally divided medium blue-dark blue-medium blue, the three fields being separated by a thin yellow fimbriation. The flag is bordered by a white fringe. The upper stripe is charged with "REPUBLICA DEL ECUADOR", in white letters, the acute accent on the "U" of "REPÚBLICA" being omitted. The central stripe is charged with the full name of the organism, in bigger letters than above, surmounted by the SUPERBAN emblem, all in white. The lower stripe seems to be without any charge.
The emblem of SUPERBAN shows an open book inscribed with "LEY" and a rooster on the right side of the book.

"Superintendente de Compañías, SUPERCÍAS (an acronym for SUPER (Superintendency)
and COMPAÑÍAS (Shortened to Cías.) (English: "Companies Superintendency") is in
charge of controlling activities for companies, societies, securities and
insurance. It seems also that the SUPERBAN has
transferred its control activities of securities and insurance to the SUPERCIAS,
hence there also seems to be a new logo (https://portal.supercias.gob.ec/wps/estilosMenu/images/super.png)
stating the organization's purpose as "Superintendencia de Compañías, Valores y
Seguros" (English: Companies, Securities and Insurance Superintendency).
The flag is a white horizontal background with the logo in the middle as seen here (second flag from left to right):
https://i.ytimg.com/vi/DTq5aYYfBHM/maxresdefault.jpg (source). Notice that this flag only incorporates the SUPERCIAS logo when it was in charge of Companies only, and not its current full scope (adding Securities and Insurance), so it might lead to think that a new flag exists according to the new scope of the institution.
