Some municipal flags (I seem to recall Sóller for instance, near the northern coast) were made up of a lozenge-shaped coat-of-arms over a nine-striped yellow and red background.

Every 2nd weekend in May a festa is celebrated in Sóller, in memory of an unsucessful assault by Turkish pirates commanded by Ulutx Ali which took place on 11 May 1561. The invaders were defeated by local Spanish forces and the people of Sóller. During the festival the inhabitants of Sóller are disguised as pirates and locals.

  1. Flag #1 is a rectangular hanging flag with an isosceles triangle added at its bottom, yellow divided by four red pallets. Shifted to the top is a crescent with a 5-point star (all in black). Beneath the ensemble is a black inscription “COLLECTIU” (1st line) “DE MOROS” (2nd line) and “FIRO” (3rd line and bigger). Furthermore above the logo is a bendy black inscription “SÓLLER”.
  2. Flag #2 is a white hanging flag divided by a red cross shifted to the top.
  3. Flag #3 is a white hanging flag with a white crescent in its centre, the horns pointing downwards (when flag has been hung).

Flag #1 probably is the flag of a club playing the part of the pirates. Flags #2 and #3 are simply representing Christians and Muslims. I observed these flags in the central square of Sóller on 23 May 2009

I'm sure it is rather "COL·LECTIU," Catalonian for "collective"?

Flags at Sóller August 2000 Festival

Some kind of music or theater festival took place at Sóller in August 2000, whereby a weird assortment of flags was displayed in front of the city hall. I can remember those of:

  • Georgia
  • Western Sahara (surprisingly a quite correct sinister hoist version, with crescent and star only on the reverse)
  • a horizontal blue-white-light green flag with an orange device on the canton, identical in position, shape and size to that on the Aghin Buriatia flag (this flag appeared to be also a "sinister hoist" version, with no device on the obverse). The flag I saw might be a (very) mistaken version of the Buriatia flag.
  • Aragon
No idea whatsoever how these relate to each other.

It is a pennant quarterly divided into white and light blue. In the centre is a white roundel showing the figures of the coat of arms of Sóller in black (two rampant lions supporting a sun), surrounded by the black inscription “C.N. Soller”. In the white upper hoist is a black upright anchor. I observed this flag in the harbour of Port d'Soller on 23 May 2009.
