The gonfalon of Santiago is flown above the chapel in Torrecastro. (Sharpe's Rifles)

The gonfalon of Santiago (or Banner of Blood) was a flag. It was said that, when flown above the chapel in Torrecastro, Saint James would appear.

Count Blas Vivar and Teresa Moreno obtained the banner and, with Richard Sharpe as an escort, took it to Torrecastro. After defeating the Count of Matamoro they flew the flag over the chapel, raising the anti-French feeling of the population and giving them hope. (Sharpe's Rifles)
