Landesflagge

[Civil Flag and Ensign (Hesse, Germany)] 3:5
by Marcus Schmöger
Flag adopted 1st December 1946

The Land flag is red on white. Proportions 3:5.

Pascal Vagnat, 19 December 1995

The civil flag (also civil ensign) is a bicolour red over white, proportions 3:5. It was first introduced with the Constitution of 1946 (Art. 66), and defined more thoroughly in the Gesetz über die Hoheitszeichen of 1948.

State Flag

Landesdienstflagge

[State Flag (Hesse, Germany)] 3:5
by Marcus Schmöger

The state flag is red on white with the arms in the middle. The flag for official cars has bigger arms in the middle. Proportions 3:5.

Pascal Vagnat, 19 December 1995

Like Landesflagge, but with the crowned arms (with leaf crown) Adopted 31 December 1949. Illustrated in Smith 1975 p. 227.

Norman Martin, April 1998

The state flag is the civil flag with the coat-of-arms in the center. It was first defined in the Gesetz über die Hoheitszeichen of 1948; the coat-of-arms was slightly changed in 1949 with the Gesetz zur Änderungs des Gesetzes über die Hoheitszeichen. The size of the coat-of-arms is defined by the drawings attached to the Verordnung über die Landesdienstflagge of 1949, where it is shown as 5/9 of the flag height. In car flags and jacks of state vessels it can be larger. I lack a good picture of the 1948-1949 coat-of-arms to make an appropriate image of the state flag in the pattern 1948-1949.

Jack for State Vessels

[Jack for State Vessels (Hesse, Germany)] 3:5
by Marcus Schmöger
Flag and coat-of-arms adopted 22nd November 1949

The state vessels (e.g. police boats) use the German federal flag as ensign. As a jack they use the Hesse state flag with, however, a rather large coat-of-arms of 5/6 of the flag height. Source: Kroker 2000 and Verordnung über die Landesdienstflagge of 1949.
