Ither seembols alludit tae are the coat o airms, flag, an banner; there is allusion tae a regional anthem an aw, though as o 2009 nane haes been adoptit. Aprile 23 is designatit Castile an León Day, commemoratin the defeat o the comuneros at the Battle o Villalar durin the Revolt o the Comuneros, in 1521.
