Description

According to the Manual del Estado Español (Handbook of the Spanish State, Spanish text only) by Editorial Lama, the flag was adopted by autonomous Decree 75/1986, of 12th June 1986 (B.O.C.L. no. 70, of 25th June 1986): "Lienzo rectangular de tamaño no superior a 1,52 x 1,98, de color rojo carmesí. En el centro, el escudo de la provincia." i.e. not larger than 1,52 x 1,98, crimson red with the provincial coat-of-arms in the center.

Pascal Vagnat, 16 July 1999

The law says the flag should be "not larger than 1,52 x 1,98", supossedly refering to meters. It is the most stupid ratio or size legislation I ever saw!

António Martins, 16 July 1999

The 76:99 ratio [implied by the 1,52 x 1,98 dimensions] is the same as the Castile and Leon flag.

Antonio Gutiérrez, 19 July 1999

Segovia's Diputación Provincial (provincial government) website has a webpage on corporate image which includes a very large JPG of the coat-of-arms. My images are based on it, assuming 76:99 ratio and the coat-of-arms is one third as high as the flag, as suggested by Ministerio para las Administraciones Públicas 1992. I am not very pleased with the three-dimensional look of the arms, but I believe the image is clearer than the one in the quoted source.

Cuartelado:
  1. de gules, el castillo de oro donjonado de tres homenajes de lo mismo fabricado de sable y aclarado de azur, acostado de dos llaves altas de plata, que son las armas de la villa de Sepúlveda;
  2. de plata, el busto de un caballo bordado con su collera en sus colores, que son las armas de la villa de Cuéllar;
  3. partido, la superior de azur y la inferior ondas de plata cargadas de dos truchas nadantes en sus colores, que son las armas de la villa de Riaza;
  4. de azur, la jarra de plata con asas de oro, saliente de ella tres ramas floridas de azucenas con sus colores, que son las armas de la villa de Santa María de Nieva.
Sobre todo, el escusón de azur con el acueducto de plata fabricado de sable y, encima, una cabeza con melena en sus propios colores, perfilada de plata, que son las armas de Segovia. Timbrado el todo de corona real de oro con sus piedras preciosas en sus colores.
