White-red bicolour with the lesser arms (i.e. just the shield without other attributes). Since 1945 Görlitz, situated on the river Neisse, is divided into a German and a Polish part (Zgorzelec). Görlitz was a countyfree city (kreisfreie Stadt) until August 2008, when it became part of the new county of Görlitz (Landkreis Görlitz).
