Flag adopted December 1945, abolished 21st January 1977
According to Calvo and Grávalos 1983, a 1943 [actually 1945] Decree modified the 1875 yachts' ensign (or recreational vessels) by changing the crown to an imperial one [i.e. the coronel or coronet of the Catholic Kings] and specifying this should be all blue coloured. There is no image of the ensign in Calvo and Grávalos 1983 (...).

The 1945-1977 ensign showed the same coronet (coronel) as in the 1945 coat-of-arms though coloured light blue and with shades in dark blue.
