Flag, Co. Mariña Central
Mondonnedo (Galician: Mondoñedo) was the capital of one of the provinces of the Kingdom of Galicia between the 12th-19th centuries, although the history of the province goes back to the 5th century AD when a province called "Britonia" was founded to accommodate a wave of Celtic refugees escaping the Saxon invasion of Britain. The capital of Britonia was destroyed by the Vikings in the late 10th century and the administration subsequently moved to Mondonnedo, which became a city in the 12th century.
The oldest representation of the Arms of Mondonnedo, according Mr Eduardo Pardo, vicepresident of the Galician Goverment's Heraldry Commission, is "a coat of arms dated on the second half of the 18th century, based on the older military standard of the Mondonnedo Provincial Regiment, which displayed the Arms of the Kingdom of Galicia".
The Flag of Mondonnedo was oficially approved by Galician Government Decree 336/1999, on December 9th 1999. The flag features the golden Holy Grail of the Kingdom of Galicia and six white crosses pate over a red field.
