It - thegither wi that o Ecuador, an aa derived frae the Banner o Gran Colombie - is different frae maist ither tricolour banners, either vertical or horizontal, in haein strips which are no equal in size. (Venezuela, whose banner is an aa derived frae the same source, optit for a mair conventional tricolour wi equal strips).
