Description

The flag of Ourense province was adopted by Decree no. 295/1997 of the Xunta de Galicia, 9th October 1997 (published in the Diario Oficial de Galicia no. 204, 22nd October 1997). Dark blue flag with eleven white discs vertically arranged on the fly. The eleven circles stand for the rivers of the province that originated its natural regions (comarcas). Formerly the 11 discs had been used by the provincial government as a logo and were said to stand for the many town councils of the province.

Jaume Ollé, 27 February 2000 and 22 Jan 2001

The flag of the Spanish province of Orense/Ourense was adopted in 1997 (as Jaume Ollé explains). The Regulation on the Usage of the Provincial Flag (Regulamento do Uso da Bandeira Provincial) was approved on 30th January 1998 (published in the Boletín Oficial da Provincia de Ourense no. 35/1998, 12th February 1998) and specifies the colours, the dimensions and the uses of the flag. (...) The flag has a ratio of 2:3. The shade of blue is Pantone 300 (50%) + Pantone 293 (50%). (...)

My acknowledgements to Mr. Tomás Vega Pato, Director of the Image Cabinet (Gabinete de Imaxe) of the provincial government (Deputación Provincial de Ourense), for the information about the flag and the official design of the coat-of-arms.

Luis Miguel Arias, 31 Jul 2001

There are enough Pantone shades, no need to 'mix' them – this is the strangest thing I ever read about colour specifications. Moreover, I am not sure if this kind of prescription is at all adequate, considering that Pantone is intended for opaque media. I would like to know what was the technical background for this...

Coat-of-Arms

According to the Manual del Estado Español (Handbook of the Spanish State, Spanish text only) by Editorial Lama, [before 1997] there [was] no flag, the historical coat-of-arms (meaning there is no known adoption date) being:

En campo de plata, puente peraltado de cinco arcos en su color natural, sumado de un castillo del mismo, con puerta y ventanas aclaradas de gules, a diestra; a siniestra un león rampante de gules empuñando, con la diestra, una espada de lo mismo; en jefe una corona real cerrada; en punta tres ondas de azur y plata; al timbre corona real cerrada, forrada de gules.
