The flag of the Province of Badajoz (photo), labelled "unofficial" in Banderas y Escudos de las provincias de España [e9s92], published by the Ministry of Public Administrations, is blue with the provincial coat of arms.
According to Manual del Estado Español (text), the arms, adopted on 27 October 1868 by the Provincial Council, are "Azure a column argent with a scroll inscribed 'Plus Ultra' accosted by a lion rampant gules".
