The Spanish flag is a horizontally striped triband:
red, yellow, red.
The yellow stripe in the middle is twice as tall as each of the red bands and carries a simplified version of Spain's coat of arms towards the hoist side. The height of the Spanish flag is two-thirds the width.
Current Spain's flag was officially adopted on December 19, 1981.
The Spanish coat of arms depicts two crown-topped pillars of Hercules (with red banners displaying the motto in Latin, "PLUS ULTRA," meaning "More Beyond," as reference to Columbus' discovery of the New World). The two columns flank a shield that displays a castle, a lion wearing a crown, red and yellow vertical stripes, chain mail, and three fleurs-de-lis in an oval in the center. An ornate red and golden crown sits atop the shield.
