Introduction

In October 1843 the basic design of military colours is modified with the adoption of the national colours. The cloth is divided in three stripes, horizontally red-yellow-red, and a simplified version of the royal arms placed in the centre, over a small Burgundy cross. This flag design had been used by warships since 1785, and in naval forts and castles since 1793. Source: Manzano 1997 [mzn97].

The 1843 regulation also established new lettering and new rules for streamers, a red and yellow one plus those appropriate to the regiment's awarded decorations. Earlier, in 1802, the number of Colours had been reduced to two per regiment, the first battalion using the coronela [approx. King's Colour] and the second battalion the so-called batallona [approx. Regimental Colour]. Source: Manzano 1997 [mzn97].

Unidentified Flag of the Cuban War, 1868-1878

[Unidentified Flag of the Cuban War, 1868-1878 (Spain)]
image by Eugene Ipavec, 15 Jan 2009

Esta bandera estampada en tela es original de guerra y era usada por los soldados Españoles durante la Guerra de Cuba (1868-2878), usada en combate y si morían podian ser enterrados con ella, según normativas se usaban en el combante, en los puestos militares, como distintivo de bando y transportada en macuto por el soldado desde España. Es interesante que fue diseñada por el Gobierno Provisional de España (1868-1871), la corona real es sustituida por otra mural, con las dos columnas de Hércules. Esta bandera era personal o individual, es curioso y la hace especial que en España aunque se decidio su uso, casí no se uso durante el gobierno en España, de ahi también su rareza y escasez, porque este diseño si fue usado durante la guerra de Cuba.

The seller was obviously making things up: "Es interesante que fue diseñada por el Gobierno Provisional de España (1868-1871), la corona real es sustituida por otra mural" whereas it obviously has not been – it it a regular closed royal crown, and anyway the First Spanish Republic did not last long enough to implement republican symbols, such as mural crowns.

Offered on Ebay, the flag measures 31 1/2" width by 32" length, is red and yellow, has in the middle a crest, and reads "BATALLON CAZADORES/DE ALFONSO XIII NO 30." The crest has a horn with a crown over it. The flag does have an older tag attached that reads "Spanish flag captured from earthworks at Aibonito, Porto Rico – Aug 1898 – Bat A., Vol. Penna."

54th Regular Motorized Infantry Regiment of Ceuta, 1922

In "El Faro," Carlos González Rosado describes in great detail "la bandera del Grupo," which seems to be the colour of an indigenous unit based in Ceuta. A colour photograph shows a Spanish square flag with an emblem in the middle, made of two rifles with a Spanish flag in the barrel crossed per saltire above a crescent argent and surmounted by a Royal Crown.
