These were basically the 1785 war ensign and pennant bearing the arms of Manila city as shown for example at the International Civic Arms website but with an oval escutcheon, royally crowned on the red stripe beneath the national arms on the ensign and on the yellow stripe immediately after the national arms on the pennant. Here is a scan from Pavillons des puissances maritimes 1819 [pav19] as shown in Znamierowski 1999 [zna99].

Znamierowski 1999, p. 20 shows an 1819 flag chart [Pavillons des Puissances Maritimes en 1819] with some other Spanish ensigns like [Royal Company of the] Philippines and Pavillon Merchand Armé en Course [corsair ensign] and so on.
