Yellow-red-white, like the arms. Sources: Staack 1997 and Stadler 1964-1971.

Stefan Schwoon, 25 February 2001

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

Münster became a city in the early 13th century. (...) The arms do not appear in official seals before 1535, although in a seal of the Antonius hospital from 1368 it is shown. The origin of the colours is not known. (...)

Literature: Stadler 1964-1971 and Veddeler 1991.
