According to Manual del Estado Español (text), the "historical flag" of the Málaga Province is "On a white background with a blue border, whose width equals 1/5 of the flag's hoist, with the provincial coat of arms in the middle".
The "historical coat of arms" of the province is "The town and castle of Gibralfaro, with the towers on the right and the yard of the captives, the prisoners and the captives shadowed in white and black, near the towers of Gibralfaro the blessed martyrs Sts. Cyriacus and Paula haloed or clad with a cloak azure and a tunica or. On the left, twelve bends in turn red and yellow. In base the waves of the sea argent on a field azure. The shield bordered with the yoke and golden arrows on a field half green and half purple. The shield surmounted by a Duke's coronet."
