Halberstadt has about 40,000 inhabitants. In the middle ages it was the seat of a bishopric and one of the most important cities in (Lower) Saxony. The flag dates at least back to the 16th century and has sixteen stripes, alternatingly white and red, superimposed on which is a "wolf hook" one of the more interesting flag designs in Saxony-Anhalt. The position of the wolf hook is either centred or shifted to the hoist and its points changed direction. The flag is shown both in flag and banner form in Günther 1996a. Since 2007 Halberstadt is the seat of Harz County.
