A comarca (District) in the Province of Girona (Gerona), Catalunya. It is the northernmost territory of Spanish Costa Brava, contiguous to France in the North. Its capital city is Figueres. The Wikipedia version has all the squares and bands lined in black, so I decided to left the impression of the squares bordure because this is a constant theme in several other Catalan flags.

This is one very ugly flag! At the very least, the designer should have tried to make it in such a manner that the fly squares in the bordure were also counterchanged, as the hoist ones. As is, it looks awful.

I absolutely agree. If the problem was the number of squares which the flag length allows for, changing the ratio would have been a more satisfactory solution than such an assymetrical design.

Or at least, the conterchanged bordure vertical edge should be at the fly, leaving the hoist as the odd one (Tibet notwidhtstanding), or even as a fringe-like hoist-less bordure (a la Asafo flags).
Anyway, along with Tarragona, this seems to be a Catalan quatre-barres, modified to be used as a municipal flag.
