BASQUE FLAGS AND BUNTING

The white cross is a symbol of the Catholic faith, the green saltire stands for the holy oak of Guernica and the red field commemorates the blood shed in the struggle for independence. The flag, called Ikkurina, was illegal from 1936 to 1977. Persecution for displaying it in public ended on 21 September 1976 and on 19 January 1977 the flag was legalized.
