Catalonia Flag

The Catalonia Flag is thought to be one of the oldest flags of the world. It probably derives from 11th century or 12th century pre-heraldic symbols. In Catalan, senyera is also a synonym of bandera (‘flag’), although normally people use the word to refer to the Catalan flag in particular.

The Senyera consists of four red stripes on a golden background. It has represented Crown of Aragon and Count of Barcelona; today it is the flag of the Autonomous Community of Catalonia. In addition, the current official flags of Aragon, the Balearic Islands and the Valencian Community, are based upon this symbol. In Aragon an extra coat-of-arms, in Balearic Islands a castle in the canton, and in Valencia a blue fringe on the hoist.

A legend tells that the four red bars were drawn on Wilfred I the Hairy’s (Count of Barcelona) golden shield by king Charles the Bald’s fingers drenched with blood from Count’s battle wounds.

 Flagpole and bracket sold separately.
