The escudo... in fact there are actually several variations of them... are to be used only by the appropriate authorities, such as the typical escudo we are used to seeing is for the civilian government, each of the armed forces has their own escudo etc etc.
As private citizens, our flags are required to be plain red and white, with no further decoration.
True…but the requirement is not enforced, at least in Chiclayo. A walk around centro this morning showed the flags displayed on government offices, businesses and private homes to be about evenly divided between plain and those with the escudo. And all
the miniature flags I’ve seen on motos and taxis have the escudo.
