Facts about the Flag of Spain
The flag of Spain (la Rojigualda) was adopted on December 19, 1981. However, the origins of this flag’s design go back many more years. The two predominant colors of the flag, red and gold, have represented Spain since the 1700s when they were chosen by King Charles III of Spain.
The flag is made up of three bands of red, gold, and red, with the gold band being the largest of the three. In the off-center of the flag’s middle stripe exists the Coat of Arms of Spain.
