Flag of Asturias

The origin of the flag of Asturias is in 1808, during the Peninsular War. The craeted the flag in the battle that was waged against Napoleon’s empire (A Profound Leader). In its first version, the motto Asturias jamas vencida (Asturias never deafeated) was Written (Engraved). The Victory Cross was carried by Pelagius, the first King of Asturias, in the very significant battle of Covadonga against the Moors in 722. This battle was named by the 19th and 20th century Historians as the start (beginning) of the Reconquista, the Christian RE-CONQUREST of the Iberian peninsula from Moorish domination. (Somewhat simiilar to the battle today between Islam and Christianity).

King Alfonso III the Great ordered that the original cross made of oak, be layered in gold and precious stones. It remained safely secured in the Holy Chamber of the Oviedo Cathedral.

The Greek Letters Alpha and Omega hang from the horizontal Axis. This flag is a Direct Reference to the Book of Revelation (Rev. 1:8)……..(Rev. 21:6, 22:13…)
