[Valencian Community (Spain)] 2:3
by Jaume Ollé
Flag adopted 10 July 1982

I have pictures of the current flag, and the devices in the blue are in different order and they are a bit different in style. The arrangement of diamonds or rubis in the red vertical band is:

The last diamond and rubi are interchanged in the World Flag Database version. The shade of the blue must be light instead of dark. Except for the pictures I couldn't find any certainly correct image of the current flag. I have the text of the Symbols [flag and coat-of-arms] law but the description is unclear.

The jewel arrangement described by Jaume Ollé is the usual one in royal and princely crowns in Spain: rectangular- or oval-shaped green emeralds and diamond-shaped rubys, with white/silver pearls in between. There should always be a pearl between any two precious stones (emerald/ruby).

According to Calvo and Grávalos 1983, drawing 666, the flag of the Comunidad Valenciana is defined in the Organic Law 5/82 of July 1st 1982, published in the Boletín Oficial del Estado number 164: Article 5, 1: "The traditional flag of the CV is made up of four red stripes on a yellow field crowned over a blue band by the hoist." 2. "A Law of the Cortes Valencianas [the autonomous parliament] may determine the heraldical symbols of the Community which shall contain those [arms] of the provinces of Castellón, Valencia and Alicante, and its incorporation to the flag over the stripes". The drawing is similar to Jaume's, with a ratio of 2:3, but the precious stones are -E-S-E-S- (E: emerald or green oval; S: sapphire or blue quatrefoil; each hyphen would represent a pearl or white circle), from bottom hoist to top. The width of the blue band (including the thin red stripe carrying the jewels) is about 1/5th of the fly.

[Valencia Autonomous Community (Spain) 1:2 ratio] 1:2
by Jaume Ollé

According to the text of the law the ratio is not fixed. The spirit of the Symbols [flag and coat-of-arms] law was 2:3 ["as the Spanish flag"] but the pictures show 1:2.

Jaume Ollé, 9 December 1998


The valencian flag is the regional flag of the Valencian Community, as is established by the Estatuto (constitution) of the Autonomous Community of Valencia. The city of Valencia uses it as the city flag too.
