Manuel L. Quezon said the source for Eric Agoncillo's image was Znamierowski 1999 which probably means the artwork from US Department of the Navy 1899 used in the latter.

The 1886 flag legislation which lasted until 1914 included a flag for the Gobernadores Generales de Ultramar or Overseas Governor-Generals which became obsolete after the Spanish-American War of 1898 in Cuba and the Phillipines.

US Department of the Navy 1899 shows the rank flag for a Spanish governor-general, which is a swallowtailed version of the war ensign with a shallow (90) cut, showing two blue stars, one on top of the other, on the yellow stripe halfway between the arms and the hoist.
