The 22nd flag mentioned and illustrated in the
Book of All Kingdoms is attributed
to "Ibernia", which is explicitly not Ireland. This as depicted in the
2005 Spanish illustrated transcription, a
flag with a black lion (facing the hoist, passant but not guardant) in the ogival
default shape of this source.

National Geographic (1917) identified this
Ibernia as Iceland (p. 390).
