Catalan Galleon EnsignAt some point of 17th century Catalan merchant ships started using white ensigns with a centered Coat of Arms of Barcelona or Catalonia, rather than the traditional yellow-and-red striped flags of earlier times (to let them look alike to other Spanish Empire flags perhaps?).

When in 1640 Catalonia shortly seceded from Spain, a red fleur-de-lis was added to each corner of flags, to symbolize the alliance to France.
