[Anhalt was a] small former German Duchy on [the River] Elbe southwest of Berlin. (...) It became a republic after World War One. After World War Two, was combined with the former Prussian Province of Saxony to become the state (Land) of Sachsen-Anhalt (abolished , but then later re-established ).

There is a weird 'former Saxony-Anhalt flag' showing the Saxon colours with the Saxony-Anhalt 1948-1952 arms at this flagmaker's webpage.
