Description

Horizontally green-white-red in proportions 1:2:1 with the arms. Sources: flag from Ulle 2000, arms from the Thuringia official website.

Stefan Schwoon, 14 Mar 2001

Flag adopted 24 March 1998, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website (who quotes Ulle 2000 as reference). From Ralf Hartemink's webpage:

The arms were granted on 18 August 1997. The district in the Middle Ages belonged to either the Counts of Orlamünde (black lion, red hearts) and the Lords of Lobdeburg (silver bend), which is symbolised in the upper part of the arms. Later the whole area belonged to the Duchy of Saxony-Eisenberg, the arms of Saxony are shown in the upper left corner.
