Gunnar Staack just sent us the flag, directly from the city authorities,
with and without the arms.

Is there some canting between the clover on the coat of arms (in German,
Klee) and the name of Kleve?
Ivan Sache, 25 Jun 2003
Yes, on this
page is written: "The arms connect the canting (Klever) clover-leaves
for Kleve with the old lordly sign of the Count".
In the Lower-German ("Platt-Deutsch"- vernacular "Klever" (Dutch: klaver) = clover.
