Throughout the years Ecuador has had many border changes such as losing its border with Flag of Brazil Brazil in the early 20th century and the changes in result of the Ecuadorian-Peruvian War in 1941 with Flag of Peru Peru, which lead to Ecuador's modern borders.

Like Flag of Colombia Colombia, Ecuador also had a liberal era, which lasted from 1895 to 1925.
