This is the sencilla flag [regimental colour] of the 5th Regiment of Foot Artillery 1810-1867. Blue was the colour of the first Artillery colours granted to the Royal Artillery Regiment, created on May 2nd 1710 by Philip V. The coronela flag [king's colour] was white, similarly to Infantry ones. Source: Luis Sorando Muzás, Banderas, Estandartes y Trofeos del Museo del Ejército 1700-1842.

This regiment was created in Majorca in 1810 but, having supported the Liberal cause against Ferdinand VII, was dissolved in 1823 with the rest of the Liberal Army. It was reorganized and dissolved several times. This flag was used until a new model red-yellow-red flag was issued, and later on from the reign of Amadeus I until Alphonse XIII.
