Spanish army vehicles operating in Iraq July 2003-May 2004 used a flag-like logo, painted (or maybe it was a decal) on vehicles' sides, doors etc., consisting of a Spanish flag with, instead of the coat-of-arms, the word Spain in black Arabic lettering. This logo has never, as far as I know, been used as an actual flag, either for hoisting or otherwise. Source: Gaceta de Banderas, May 2004 issue, article by Jorge Hurtado.

Spain in Arabic is Isbaniya, which in Arabic letters would be: Alif (with hamza below) - Sim - Be - Alif - Nun - Ye - Alif, i.e. اسبانيا:

Put it all together and it spells Isbaniya, which is about as close to España as you can get in Arabic.
