Pendón cuartelado: 1o y 4o de gules, un castillo de oro, aclarado de azur, mazonado de sable; 2o y 3o de plata, un león rampante de púrpura, armado y lampasado de gules, coronado de oro.

Pendón interpretado por mí como: un rectángulo de proporción entre su ancho y su alto de 5x6; el campo está esmaltado de tintas planas gules y plata; los 2 castillos y los 2 leones están iluminados; el león y su corona están delineados del campo; el castillo está mazonado de sable; y el conjunto tiene un acabado apergaminado.

Puede consultarse en el armorial para la coronación de [Eduardo IV de Inglaterra; 1461; columna 2, fila 25] un pendón de estas características, la razón de ello era la aspiración de Eduardo IV a este reino, aspiración procedente de sus predecesores.

Este armorial fue realizado por diferentes artistas y al que le correspondió hacer el pendón de Castilla y León parece que pintó los leones de oro, si bien este oro no es tan amarillo como el que esmalta los castillos, castillo que tienen 2 ventanas mínimas y una puerta aclarada de azur. Por esta diferencia de tonos entre leones y castillos cabría plantearse la hipótesis de una degradación de un esmalte púrpura original en un ocre.

Al comienzo del armorial también aparecen estos leones en una representación ecuestre de Eduardo IV donde un tono rosa podría recordar a un púrpura original y, por tanto, apoyar la hipótesis de la degradación.

Finalmente, hay una tercera aparición de estos leones en otro pendón que combina las armas de Castilla y León con las de Inglaterra. Donde el color de los leones es más parecido al del pendón que al de la representación ecuestre.

Alphonse X of Castile

Escudo cuartelado: 1o y 4o de gules, un castillo de oro, aclarado de azur, mazonado de sable; 2o y 3o de plata, un león rampante de púrpura, armado y lampasado de gules.

Known as the Wise, King of Castile and Leon from 1252 to 1284.

Quarterly: 1 and 4 Gules, a castle triple towered Or, port and windows Azure, masoned Sable; 2 and 3 Argent, a lion rampant Purpure, armed and langued Gules.

Armories of the Wise King of Castile interpreted by me with the following characteristics: the external shape of the coat of arms ends in an ogee arch; the field, the 2 castles, and the 2 lions are outlined and enameled in flat colors; and the texture seems fabric.

This coat of arms, but with a pointed external shape, can be seen in the 2nd part of the so-called armorial [Wijnbergen; 1265; cuat of arms number 1,289], with the title «Le roy Despaingne», which in this context is understood to refer to Castilla y León.

The 2nd part of this armorial was made between 1270 and 1285 and, being Alphonse X king of Castile and Leon from 1252 to 1284, it is to Him that the title «Le roy Despaingne» seems to refer.
