Unna county (Northrhine-Westphalia)
Description of flag:
The flags ratio is 3:5. It is a red over white horizontal bicolour
with the county's coat of arms in its centre.
Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess. The base is the Markian chequered bar.
The chief shows the upper half of a red rampant lion.
Both elements are symbolizing that the counties territory belonged
completely to the counts of Mark.
Authorized: Veddeler says that the flag is used. The coat of
arms however was granted already on 25 May 1938 by Prussian government.
