An article by Dr. Whitney Smith, Gwenn ha Du (black and white) in Ar Banniel, 1999, mentions "13. Prussia - Province of Posen (1896-1934). Horizontal white-black-white."
Ivan Sache, 2 August 1999

In 1886, the flag was changed by the Prussian authorities into horizontal white-black-white triband, because the former was far too similar to Polish. White-black-white triband was the official provincial flag till 1918.
