I purchased a 3"x5" flag of the Falange Party when I visited the Valley of the Fallen monument outside Madrid. The flag is equally divided into 3 vertical stripes red-black-red with a yoke of 5 red arrows [and yoke] in the black center panel.

This is the current flag of Falange Española (de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacionalsindicalista) (in short, FE de las JONS, or more usually Falange). This is the legitimate Falange party whatever that means though many exist: Falange Auténtica, Falange Independiente etc.

Smith 1975 [smi75c], pp. 340-341 ("Symbols in politics"), shows among others the flag of Spain's National Phalanx party. Vertical red-black-red (1:2:1) with red emblem in the middle of black stripe. The description above is of a flag purchased in the Franco memorial, so Smith may be wrong.

Patria Libre is a youth group that depends directly from FE-JONS (Falange Espaņola de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacional Sindicalista).
