• The beauty of Spanish manuscript coats of arms—popularly and often imprecisely called "cartas ejecutorias de hidalguía"—has led to their being the most popular type of Spanish illuminated manuscript across a wide swath of the book and art collecting public.
The text traces the history of Don Gerónimo's family on both the paternal and maternal sides, a family strongly rooted in the Basque provinces, with note that the farthest back members were among those who first fought the Arab invaders at the very beginning of the Reconquista.
While many would label the manuscript a "carta de hidalguía," in fact, it is not, strictly; rather it is a confirmation of Gerónimo's arms, together with a genealogy and explanations of the various ancestor families' coats of arms and of his own.

 Subnational Flags (Spain)
Pascal Vagnat asked, "did the provinces of the uniprovincial communities —Asturias, Cantabria, La Rioja, Madrid, Murcia, Navarre and the Balearic Islands— have a flag and/or a coat of arms".
Still, I feel it is a shame that most of these flags have reduced their internal, attractive coats-of-arms to a size where the details are hard to discern.
I have always wondered why Spanish civic flags are not either simply bi- or tricolours in the main livery colours (with no arms) or a banner-of-arms (simplified or not, as most Catalan civic flags).
