Flagdescription: Two equally wide horizontal stripes of red and white.
This flag was not official, but was used by the municipal council and the citizens. In 1955 the High Council of Nobility advised a flag with three stripes red - white - black, but the municipal council decided on 30 Aug 1955 to maintain the earlier used flag. Red and white are only two colors from the municipal arms; black is the third color.
