The Spanish Flag over Tybee Island
Spain had claimed the territory that stretched from Port Royal, South Carolina to St. Augustine, Florida. They called this land "La Florida." The Spanish flag was the second flag to fly over Tybee Island.
The embattled caste on the field of red represented the house of Castille, and the red lion rampant on the white field represented Leon. This Spanish flag of Ferdinand and Isabella reflected the newly united Kingdom of Spain.
