Meaning and origin of the Spain-Flag:

The flag of Spain on 19 Introduced in December 1981.

The national flag of Spain consists of three horizontal stripes in the colors red, yellow and red, the central yellow stripe is twice as wide as the two red. The Spanish coat of arms is wholly yellow stripes. On the back of the coat of arms is inverted in the correct presentation, so it seems as if the coat would shine through from the front. The banner is not mirrored, so that it is readable from both sides.

The flag without the emblem serves as a simplified version of the Civil and Commercial flag. She was already on 29 August 1936 introduced. Its origins, however, are even older.
