Last Monday I was in Szeged and I have seen the flag. This flag is NOT an hanging flag. Ratio: 2:1. On blue field there is the Coat of Arms of the city.

On 1 October, 1997, a part of the city, Algyo, left Szeged and became an independent village again.

This flag appears at Dr. Széll Sándor: Városaink neve, címere és lobogója (1941) as "Szeged, Csongrád Co.".

Szeged flag is a banner of arms (The Coat of Arms kept its place even during the Communist regime with red star added). It won't surprise me if the same flag is also in use today.

Szeged city - "The today Coat of Arms of the city adopted the eagle from the old Coat of Arms. The pattern's blue field with the silver stripes relates to the Tisza and Maros rivers. The gold sun is the symbol of the uninterrupted renewal and relates to Szeged as a city of the sunshine and as the center of the intellectual life of the country region."

The Coat of Arms originally was given by King Charles (Károly) III on 21 May 1719, when the city became Free Royal City (again).
The Coat of Arms was removed in 1948 (cmmunist era).
It was readopted after 1989. Resolutions about the using of the CoA and the flag and modifying res.:
16/1993. (VII. 10.)
25/1998. ( VII.27.)

I came across a photo of a honoris causa ceremony that included three flags: UE, Hungary (state flag) and a light grey flag with a Coat of Arms in the center that I could not identify. The photo is at <www.pharm.u-szeged.hu>.

The logic dictates that the third flag would be that of the University, though that the arrangement of the three flags is not quite as it should be according to the protocol rules. The Coat of Arms of the University of Szeged may be see on their home page <www.u-szeged.hu> but not of the best quality, however, clearly the same emblem as on the flag in question. I suppose that the text around the Coat of Arms reads in Latin: Universitas Scientiarium Szegediensis, and in Magyar: Szegedi Tudományegyetem. (The amount of text around the Coat of Arms would suggestthat both languages are used).

At another photos in here and here, you'll find the same symbol hanging on the wall. According to it, the flag belongs to the "Universitas Scientiarium Szegediensis / Szegedi Tudományegyetem".
