About the Valencia flag

The flag of the Valencian Community and of the city of Valencia, known as Senyera Coronada (Valencian pronunciation: [seˈɲeɾa koɾoˈnaða], "Crowned Senyera"), is the traditional Senyera, composed of four red bars on a yellow background, crowned with a blue strip party per pale next to the spear with 1/4 of the total length. It was adopted on July 1, 1982.

It is an historical derivation of the Senyera, the heraldic symbol of the Crown of Aragon, also used today with few variations in all the former kingdoms and counties which were a part of this crown.

The flag design is or, four stripes of gules. A transversal azure band 1/4 to the hoist ornated with lambrequins of or with a thin stripe of gules ornated with pearls, emeralds and rubies. There are no official proportions specified, but two ratios, 1:2 and 2:3, are being used.
