This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at

1 Pyro Niña box

When I built the Pyro Niña several years ago, I followed the Pyro box art in painting the flags - which were incorrect!

The Ferdinand and Isabella flag was in the ballpark, but it should have been white with green cross and lettering, like this:

Fernando y Ysabel flag
but I later discovered that the aft flag, the Royal Standard of the Catholic Kings, was completely off. Shown yellow with a red bird in the box art, it was actually this emblem:

Reyes Catolicos
on a white background.

Anyway, the Round 2 re-release has both flags correctly depicted as decals:

Go Round 2!
