I purchased a 3"x5" flag of the Falange Party when I visited the Valley of the Fallen monument outside Madrid. The flag is equally divided into 3 vertical stripes red-black-red with a yoke of 5 red arrows [and yoke] in the black center panel., 30 Jan 1999

This is the current flag of Falange Española (de las Juntas de Ofensiva Nacionalsindicalista) (in short, FE de las JONS, or more usually Falange). This is the legitimate Falange party – whatever that means – though many exist: Falange Auténtica, Falange Independiente etc.

Mistaken variant shown in Smith 1975

[Falange Española (Spain), incorrect version]
image by Ivan Sache, 06 Aug 1999

Smith 1975 [smi75c], pp. 340-341 ("Symbols in politics"), shows among others the flag of Spain's National Phalanx party. Vertical red-black-red (1:2:1) with red emblem in the middle of black stripe. The description above is of a flag purchased in the Franco memorial, so Smith may be wrong.
