Introduction

With the 1982 regulation two of the three types of car flags were abolished, at least de jure. Only the second type survived. Up to 1982 this was the car flag for special occasions used by the Senate Syndics (German:Senatssyndizi), that had been renamed in the meanwhile to Deputy Senators (German: Staatsräte. This car flag now shall be used for 'representative occasions' both by senators and state secretaries.

With the 1982 regulation two of the three types of car flags have been abolished, at least de jure. Only type 2 survived. (...) According to Hertenstein 1985 (Jörg Hertenstein, Die Flaggen des Bundeslandes Hamburg, in Hamburgische Geschichts- und Heimatblätter no. 11, pp. 153-158, 1985) the old car flags of the two other types, although legally abolished, were still in stock, albeit rarely used, in June 1984.
