A horizontal tricolour of red-white-yellow (...) defaced with a Burgundy cross on the white stripe – sometimes centred, sometimes offset to the hoist – is usually reported as the flag of the Spanish Netherlands:

Flag of the Spanish Netherlands It is a red over white over yellow horizontal tricolour with a red cross burgundy at the hoist. (Source: [neu32]; p.32, image no.109) I am in doubt, especially about [neu39a], but due to our policy of giving also erroneous reports of flags I send this image, which is based on an image by Sergio Camero.

The same flag, but with either no cross at all or the cross centered, appears on the "The flags of the Belgians through history" plate.
I believe that Neubecker is much more trustworthy than the plate.
