Gules a Bath-Tub Or and in chief a Coin of the same bearing a Cross recercelée Sable and Coupeaux Vert.

Željko Heimer, 10 March 2001

The kind of wash-tub on the flag of Geltwil is called in the German blazoning "Gelte" but I've not been able to find a good translation for this item but I think that wash-tub is the closest one. The coin on this same flag is called "Batzen" in German, and, again, no good translation for that word. It appears to represent a small coin.  Anyway, this flag is canting twice with both "Gelte" (the wash-tub) and "Geld" (money) represented by the coin.
