White over red, the arms on a white square in the head of the flag.
Dieter Linder, 18 November 1998

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms show three helmets, which may be a canting element for the -hut part of the name. They already appear in the oldest known seal, from 1275. The present arms show the helmets according to the old seal, but during the centuries the shape of the helmets has differed widely. The colours are known since the 15th century and are probably the Bavarian colours. (...)
Literature: Stadler 1964-1971.
