According to the Manual del Estado Español (Handbook of the Spanish State, Spanish text only) by Editorial Lama:

  • historical flag [meaning there is no known adoption date]: "Sobre fondo rojo carmesí el escudo de la provincia" i.e. crimson red with the provincial coat-of-arms in the center;
  • coat-of-arms: adopted in the 19th century, completed with the Laureate Cross by Decree of the 17th July 1939:
    Sobre un campo de pergamino, un escudo con bordura de plata con ocho castillos. En el interior, seis banderas de oro nacientes al diestro, sobre fondo carmesí. El escudo sobre la cruz laureada de San Fernando. Rodeando el escudo, una cinta con los colores de la bandera nacional y sobre ella los escudos de los ocho antiguos Partidos Judiciales y, abajo, el lema, "Excma. Diputación Provincial". A ambos lados del pergamino y sujetándolo hay dos leones, así como timbrado por corona real abierta.

The Cruz Laureada de San Fernando or Laureate Cross of Saint Ferdinand is the Spanish highest military decoration for valour.

I found a picture of the provincial flag of Valladolid at the website of the Diputación Provincial (provincial council), once more a simple coat-of-arms on a crimson field. A very small image of the official provincial coat-of-arms can be seen here at the same website and a larger one here at José María Valladolid's civic heraldry website, though the wreath appears to be of a lighter shade than in the official model.
