3:5 | stripes 1+2+1 image by Stefan Schwoon
Vertically divided red-white-red in proportions 1:2:1. The charges of the coat of arms are displayed in the white stripe. The vertical format of 1:2:1 seems to be quite common in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania civic flags. Sources: flag from Staack 1997 and Günther 1998a, arms from Bensing et al, Lexikon Städte und Wappen der DDR, Leipzig, 1984.
