Original Spanish American War Captured Spanish National War Ensign

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a small silk flag captured by U.S. troops during the Spanish American War.

The flag is the National War Ensign 1785-1931 and National State Flag 1843-1931. In 1785, King Charles III replaced the existing war ensign (a white field with the Spanish coat-of-arms centered on it), with a new, distinct ensign which could not easily be mistaken with those of other countries. In 1843, the design also became the official Spanish State Flag. This basic background design is still used today in the modern Spanish national flag with the Royal Shield being replaced by a more modern coat-of-arms.

Overall condition is very good with expected wear and light soiling.
