[During a recent vacation, I noticed that] in San Sebastián, interestingly, both the ayuntamiento [city council] and the main library flew only the municipal flag: a plain white flag with a small blue canton. The canton appeared to be square and about 40% of the height of the hoist, but this may not be exactly correct.

Vincent Morley, 9 October 1999

Flying the city flag alone is a common solution to avoid flying the Spanish flag —which would attract independentist flag-burning mobs— or flying the Basque flag without flying the Spanish one —which is illegal in official buildings, including Basque Government ones—.

Santiago Dotor, 14 October 1999
