The colours of the [Prussian] province adopted in 1887 were the same as the ones of the former kingdom: yellow over white. This flag can still be seen today, but is rarely used. The coat-of-arms of the Prussian province and later Land of Hanover was Gules a horse Argent. It can still be used.

[According to the website of the Hanoverian monarchists] after the Prussian annexation, in 1873, a provincial flag was designed with the lion of Lüneburg instead of the horse, but this was so unpopular, that finally in 1881 the horse was readopted (without the green field).
