No header[edit]

Official colors of flag (not of COA) are described as gules Rojo bandera 9.5 0.614 0.320 Amarillo gualda bandera 56.7 0.488 0.469; those corresponding as RGBconverter to HTLM #b0081c and #ffbb00.--SanchoPanzaXXI 19:43, 19 September 2007 (UTC)

Furthermore, as it is also especified "iluminante C" and accurate + - 5 units CIELAB[1], so we get the following possibilities, by using above conversion tool, on the basis of legal specification:

Colors Sample Comments
Gules(Rojo Bandera)C60B1E   #b0081c (Direct HTLM conversion from Yxy 9.5/0.614/0.320)
Oro (Amarillo Bandera)   #ffbb00 (Direct HTLM conversion from Yxy 56.7/0.488/0.469)
Gules(Rojo Bandera)   #990033 (Web-Safe conversion)
Oro(Armarillo bandera)   #ffcc00 (Web-Safe conversion)
Gules(Rojo Bandera)   #C60B1E (Same HTLM to CIELAB again + 5 units CIELAB) BRIGHTEST VERSION
Oro(Armarillo bandera)   #FFC400 (Same HTLM to CIELAB again + 5 units CIELAB) BRIGHTEST VERSION
Gules(Rojo Bandera)   #db000d (Previous version 27/02/2007) out of documented range
Oro(Armarillo bandera)   #fbea0e (Previous version 27/02/2007) out of documented range

What we can see, colors employed on version 27/02/2007 do not match to any documented official source and it is not acceptable to fix them on the basis of a personal perception. Red #db000d corresponds to CIELAB 45/71/56 that excede legal CIELAB 35/70/37 by more than 5 units. Also yellow #fbea0e goes to CIELAB 91/-17/91 compared to legal 85/95 (?)/80. Notice that Web-Safe codes don't change after +- accuracy CIELAB. So I will ammend again version to the brightest version here explained as it can be verified from sources and not from a private POV (even if it was quite reasonable, but not supported by any source)--SanchoPanzaXXI 11:18, 20 September 2007 (UTC)

Los colores de verdad son los del pie del cuadro, donde pone gules y oro. Los que tiene ahora (¿burdeos y ámbar?) son falsos. Para comparar los colores raros que tiene actualmente con los que debería tener, por ejemplo:

According to the Real Decreto 441/1981, de 27 de febrero, por el que se especifican técnicamente los colores de la Bandera de España the official colours are:
Red: L 35, C 80, H 35
Yellow: L 80, C 95, H 85
Which converting them to RGB and HTML with this tool we have:
Red: RGB(177,7,28), HTML #B1081C
Yellow: RGB(255,186,0), HTML #FFBA00
So, could anyone change the current flag to the right colours?? thanks. Xagasi 19:56, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Those colors are the two ones show at top of the table..therefore, seems to be too dark (saturated) to use for a PC monitor. However, they are the recomemnded for printing.--SanchoPanzaXXI 22:19, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
They look very right to me, I see you used the brightest colours admited by the Real Decreto's tolerance. Xagasi 00:12, 26 November 2007 (UTC)

Sorry, but the current version appears to be clean. →Nagy 13:49, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
Current version includes lots of groups and odd elements like transform. SkyBonTalk\Contributions 16:45, 2 May 2009 (UTC)
Cutting out the empty elements near the end of the file would reduce file length by about 2k, but wouldn't change the rendering. AnonMoos (talk) 01:18, 3 May 2009 (UTC)
So anyway the image needs optimization so I request unprotection. SkyBonTalk\Contributions 15:28, 12 May 2009 (UTC)

Escudo de España[edit]

El escudo de armas que aparece en la bandera es espeluznante, por decirlo suavemente. Es un refrito hecho a partir de una versión simplificada del Escudo de España, según unas simples recomendaciones sobre imagen corporativa. El modelo correcto debería de ser este otro, muchísimo mejor realizado:

Las tonalidades de los colores de la bandera son más que correctas, e invitaría, a alguien que supiera hacerlo, a insertar el modelo antes indicado en la ilustración, en lugar del churro que ahora aparece en ella.--Jacinto-Miróbriga (talk) 11:23, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
