18:25 | 3.6 m × 5 m
by Luis Miguel Arias
A Circular Order of 6th May 1931, issued after the adoption of the Republican red-yellow-purple triband, published in the Colección Legislativa del Ejército (Army Legislative Collection) no. 230/1931, fixed the dimensions of the flags to be flown on coastal fortresses and other military and official buildings as 1.35 m × 2.25 m which implies 3:5.
A Circular Order of 10th November 1932 fixed the dimensions of flags for naval fortresses and castles as 3.6 m × 5 m, which implies 18:25, because flags with the dimensions in the 1931 Order could not be seen from foreign ships.
