Bilbao is the capital of Biscay province. The flag of Bilbao (Basque Bilbo) is white with a red canton, and can be seen in the PDF online version of Heraldry of the Towns of Biscay available at the Biscay provincial government website. Ratio 2:3. Note the canton is not a quarter of the field but smaller.

Santiago Dotor, 5 October 2000

The flag of Bilbao (white with a red canton) was based on the one adopted in 1845 for the maritime province of Bilbao.
