Lubań city old flag

Recently the city of Hildesheim, Germany, hosted a meeting of the expatriated people from Lauban, a town in Silesia; its Polish name is Luban. In honour of the meeting, the town hall flew the flag of Hildesheim and a red-black bicolour for Lauban.

The current flag of the town is a red-black bicolour with a white pair of crossed keys. I assume that the plain bicolour was the flag of the town before 1945 and that the Germans of Lauban therefore use the flag in this form. In fact, the "Städtebuch" (Book of Cities) of 1939 names red and black as the colours of the town.
