According to the Manual del Estado Español (Handbook of the Spanish State, Spanish text only) by Editorial Lama:

  • historical [meaning there is no known adoption date] banner [here meaning a hanging flag], "Pendón morado, en forma especial al describir en la parte inferior una curva parecida a la cola de un gallo";
  • historical coat-of-arms [meaning there is no known adoption date]:
    Acuartelado, con dos campos de oro y dos de gules contrapuestos y orla de siete castillos dorados en campo de gules y siete leones rojos sobre plata. Sobre todo, en el centro, la imagen del Santo Rostro, en óvalo de plata. Timbre de corona real Borbónica.

Pascal Vagnat, 16 July 1999

"Purple banner with its bottom describing a shape similar to that of a rooster's tail."

António Martins, 16 July 1999

I guess the shape in question is what would heraldically be described as counterarched invecked, if you see what I mean.

Santiago Dotor, 20 July 1999
