Luchón

[Flag of Luchón] image by Eugene Ipavec, 16 December 2009

The 50th flag mentioned and illustrated in the Book of All Kingdoms is attributed to "Luchón", which is somewhere in coastal northeastern Africa, currently in either Egypt or Libya. This as depicted in the 2005 Spanish illustrated transcription, a yellow flag with a white crescent (with black lining visible) pointing to the hoist but *not* in the ogival default shape of this source: the flag is quadrangular with five round shallow indentations on the fly edge, and shows a black line where the said ogival shape would be in other flags.

The anonymous author of Book of All Kingdoms describes the flag thus: "E el rey d’ella á por señales una seña amarilla con una luna blanca atal." (= "And its king has for device a yellow ensign with a white moon like this".
António Martins-Tuválkin, 22 November 2007

This name is contemporary Spanish rendering of Lukk. The place is actually in Libya, between Tobruk and Egyptian border.
