Burgenland is home to more than 8,000 ethnic Hungarians. More than 30% of the inhabitants live in four settlements: Unterwart/Alsˇor, Oberwart/Felsoor, Oberpullendorf/Felsopulya and Siget in der Wart/Orisziget. They use the Hungarian flag on the Hungarian national holidays.

As far as I know, Croats in Burgenland consider themselves Croatians, and use Croatian flag or variation without the "crest" and smaller shield often in home made flags, though they may be some local flags. However, such flags would not be the national flags, but the flags of their societies and such. I believe that Burgenland Croat communities at least have several flags of their cultural societies. But, as I said, they can't be considered national flags.
