Burgos Province

The provincial flag of Burgos is purple with the coat-of-arms, like many other provincial flags. The provincial flags of Spain are rarely used, but at the 1998 13th Spanish Vexillogical Congress I had the pleasure of seeing two samples of the flag: one of them was in the Diputación Provincial (provincial government) building. The other was in the room where the Congress (sponsored by the Burgos' Diputación Provincial) took place. A cooperation agreement was signed by the Diputación through which the SEV will create the c. 1200 local flags and shields of the province. In the Congress room were six flags: Europe, Spain, Castile and Leon, Burgos province, Burgos city and SEV.
