Can anybody please help identify this flag?

Postby Elegug » 13 Sep 2016 22:48

Dear students of vexillology,

I spotted a flag being waved in the audience at the Royal Albert Hall during the BBC's coverage of the last night of the proms and I am struggling to identify it. Can any of you good people help?

The flag has 5 stripes of two colors, alternate gold (or yellow) and red. In the Centre of the flag is a three turreted castle in a yellow shield.

I'm stumped. Any ideas?

Many thanks indeed.

It is probably the Flag of the City of Oldenburg, Germany.

I'd say that's a hit! My rudimentary research came up with Oldenburg previously but the flag I saw was missing the castle and I dismissed it too quickly.

Many thanks indeed.
