Origins of the Aragonese-Catalan Flag (Spain) (2892 words)
Aragon was only one of the kingdoms of the Catalan crown, the one with the best-known name, but politically and economically insignifiant.
The flag of Aragon (or signal of the house of Aragon) was the insignia of the house or lineage of the kings of Aragon which appeared on its coat-of-arms.
When the kingdom of Aragon became the Crown of Aragon this flag was common to all its components and established as one with 4 (four) pallets, and thus it was Catalonia who adopted the signal of Aragon when the count of Barcelona married the heiress of Aragon, committing himself to take charge of her kingdom.
