Description

According to the Manual del Estado Español (Handbook of the Spanish State, Spanish text only) by Editorial Lama:

  • historical flag [meaning there is no known adoption date], "La cruz roja de San Jorge sobre fondo blanco" i.e. a red Saint George cross on white.
  • coat-of-arms: since 1869, approved by the Real Academia de la Historia [Royal Academy of History] in 1921, modified on 24th July 1939, approved by the Real Academia on 1st March 1940: "Escudo cuartelado: Primer cuartel: De oro, con árbol de Sobrarbe, que es encina en sus colores naturales rematada en una cruz griega de gules. Segundo cuartel: Cruz de plata agujada por abajo sobre fondo de azur (originalmente cárdeno). Tercer cuartel: De plata, cruz de San Jorge de gules, con cuatro cabezas de moros. Cuarto cuartel: Cuatro barras o bastones de gules sobre campo de oro. En escusón: De forma oval, sobre azur, una columna (representativa del Pilar de Zaragoza) en plata, con la cruz de Santiago en gules.".

Pascal Vagnat, 16 Jul 1999

The flag of Saragossa province, or rather the flag of its Diputación Provincial or provincial government is hoisted both at the Diputación's main building in Plaza de España and one or two more buildings in Saragossa. It is simply white with a red cross, with no coat-of-arms. The arms of the cross appear to be as wide as a fifth of the hoist.

Unidentified or Mistaken Variant

[Saragossa Province, Unidentified or Mistaken Variant (Aragon, Spain)]
image by Jaume Ollé

Jaume Ollé shows it with the coat-of-arms over all.

António Martins, 16 Jul 1999

Moreover, Jaume Ollé's image of the coat-of-arms is mistaken, since the first two quarters have been swapped.

Real Maestranza de Caballería

A leaflet of the "Real Maestranza de Caballería" which I picked up at the tourist information office showed its flag, dark red with on the centre the coat-of-arms, "Azure a cross formy fitchy at the base Argent," thus similar to the second quarter of the Aragonese arms.

In that leaflet, the flags are shown hanging from the balconies of the Maestranza (or Miguel Donlope) Palace, which can be seen in this online photo (without the flags).
