Ministerio Público (Public Ministry)

image by Eugene Ipavec, 26 August 2009

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.

Procuraduría General del Estado (States's General Ombudsman)

On July 31 I saw this image 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's General Ombudsman), its symbols do not match either of the two UFE's.
The Procuraduría has the following symbols:
- flag:
- logo:  and

Superintendencia de Bancos y Seguros

"Superintendencia de Bancos y Seguros" (SUPERBAN) is the organism in charge of the supervizing 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 promulagated in 1832 to regulate currency minting. The Law on Hypothecary Banks was passed in 1869, completd 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 Comissioner 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, surmonted 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.
