Description of the flag

A blue / white / blue horizontal triband, with an orange sun, a green tree, and a brown hut depicted on central white band. National flag on canton.

Previous flag and wrong shade of blue (?)

Both my grandparents were the superintendent and representative respectively of the River Cess Territory under Grand Bassa County. In 1984 River Cess became a full fresh political County and the old flag that you are using was changed — the type of blue used is wrong.
Mark B. Johnson, National VP. River Cess Association of America, 14 May 2008 and 08 July 2008

The mentioned error seems to be limited to the exact shade of blue used — while our image uses for the top and bottom stripe the same (dark) shade as in the canton of the national flag, River Cess Association of America uses light blue for the stripes, in sharp contrast with the dark canton’s canton.

I understand that River Cess was administered as a part of Grand Bassa until 1984 — but was its flag created in 1984, or did exist previously as the flag of a territory?

The source, if none other, seems to be the 1990 stamp, as the illustrated design shows the edge stripes of the River Cess county flag in dark blue (but in supposedly correct light blue for Grand Gedeh, Margibi and Bomi).
