Introduction

In 1918 the republic was proclaimed in the Grand Duchy of Hesse, and the new constitution approved on 12 December 1919.

Jaume Ollé, 17 July 1996


State Flag 1923-1935

Landesdienstflagge

The service flag was red-white-red (1:2:1) with the Land's coat-of-arms in the middle (this was essentially the old civil ensign). Used from 5th July 1923 to 1933.

Handelsflagge

Flag adopted 5th July 1923, abolished 1935

The civil ensign was red-white-red (1:1:1). Used from 5th July 1923 to 1933.

Jaume Ollé, modified by Mario Fabretto, 24 August 1998

The correction (Deckblatt or 'cover sheet') no.52 dated 1928 to the Flaggenbuch 1926 added the Hesse Handelsflagge or civil ensign (which did not appear previously in the book) as a red-white-red flag with proportions 1:2. (...) I wonder why did this non-seafaring state change its flag ratio from 2:3 to 1:2.
