Description

The 81st flag mentioned and illustrated in the in the illustrated transcription of the Book of All Kingdoms [f0fXX] is attributed to Babylon, both parts of it: "Alcaara and Baldaque." This is depicted in the 2005 Spanish illustrated transcription [f0f05] as an empty flag outline (in the ogival default shape of this source). The edge of the flag is dashed, so it doesn't seem to be a plain white flag. I have no idea where this comes from, as the text mentions an image.
The anonymous author of [f0fXX] describes the flag thusly:

«El rey d'estas dos provincias á por señales estas»
"The king of these two provinces has this for his device."

The 1912 Halkyut Society illustrated English edition [f0f12] does not include this mention of the missing flag, probably due to a discrepancy in the several manuscripts of the Book of All Kingdoms.
