Flag in form of a flapping flag (without arms)
|Flag in form of a hanging flag (with arms)|
municipality Wartenberg uses a flag in the colours
Red-Yellow. These are the historical colours (Letter from
the Bavarian Main Public Record Office of February 18th
1999). According to information from the municipality
Wartenberg red-yellow flags have been used since at least
1955, since about 1990 also with the arms.
In actual use are hanging flags and flapping flags without arms in the proportions 19:5. Hanging flags with arms (proportions 16:5) are only used in closed rooms (e.g. Strogenhalle). These flags have been manufactured by Fahnen Kössinger in Schierling. Besides, little triangular pennants (alternatively red and yellow) are used on lines across the street.
Flags are used for instance during the fun-fair in June.
Old flag in form of a hanging flag (without arms)
reportedly flags in the colours Green-Red had been used.
Detailed information, when these flags really had been
used, and where the colorus derive from, could not be
obtained up to now. Presumably the colours are derived
from variants of the arms used before 1955 (see e.g. Siebmacher): there are variants showing on a red
field a green dragon or a yellow dragon
on a green triple-mount.
Even now flags in the colours Green-Red are used sometimes by citizens as hanging flags (proportions e.g. 19:5).
