As far as ensigns are concerned, before 1700, during the Hapsburg dynasty, several forms of the Burgundy cross were used. With the establishment of the Bourbon dynasty in 1700, the main arrangement became a white cloth with the royal arms of Spain. With some drawings provided image by Eduardo Panizo, I did the above image of the Spanish ensign from 1759 to 1785, under Charles III. The arms are [offset] towards the hoist.
