[Flag of Delhi] image by António Martins-Tuválkin, 10 December 2007

The 86th flag mentioned and illustrated in the Book of All Kingdoms is attributed to Oxanap, which is identified in the Halkyut Society edition as Burma. This as depicted in the 2005 Spanish illustrated transcription, a white flag with a thin vertical yellow stripe (with visible black lining) in the ogival default shape of this source.

The anonymous author of Book of All Kingdoms describes the flag thus: "El rey de Oxanap ha por señales un pendón de plata con un bastón de oro tal." (="The King of Oxanap has for his device a white flag with a pale of gold", as translated in the Halkyut Society edition.)
