    Overview

    I do not know Fred's sources regarding the Zacapa Department flag, but I have found some pictorial evidences of other flags of Zacapa Department. Of course, the main elements are a cactus and 10 stars, but there are various designs.
    Based on pictures at these sites, the current version is a pale yellow (baige) flag with its arms in the center and name Zacapa is placed under the logo with black letters. Green cactus placed on a yellow disc but the stars are blue.

    (Pictures taken in December 2010 and May 2011)
    A previous flag could be white with a different type of its logo, consisted of cactus on a yellow disc, and ten white stars are placed around it on a light blue ring. Full name of department is placed over and under the logo.

    I assume that Zacapa flag could change every time when a new governor was appointed.
