The name of the city: Gyor Megyei Jogu' Va'ros means Gyor City with County Rank The pictures made by me from the Office of Gyor City. Gyor City is located in the territory of Gyor-Moson-Sopron County but it is not a part of the county. The flag was adopted in 1990.

I located a site: with two flags for the town of Gyor
Jarig Bakker, 31 July 2000

This is a memorial flag. The front side of the flag is same as the official Gyor flag. the back side is a script: "A GYORI TUZOLTÓSÁGNAK 1870-1990 ADOMÁNYOZTA GYOR VÁROSA" means "FOR THE FIRE-BRIGADE OF GYOR 1870-1990 PRESENTED BY THE TOWN OF GYOR"
Istvan Molnar, 1 August 2000

Above are the correct versions of the flag based on the No.6/1998 (III.1.) Resolution. The flag is 150x120 cm's, the CoA is 60 cm high. Ratio of the horizontal flag: 5:4, the vertical flag: 4:5
Some old resolutions about the symbols of Győr are:
No.2/1974 (TK.2/1974)  'communist-era (1974 - 1989) flag'
No.1/1990 (III.15.)
No.9/1990 (VIII.15.)
No 53//1990 (VII.6.)

Historical Flag

by Antonio Martins, 28 Febuary 2001

This flag appears at Dr. Széll Sándor: Városaink neve, címere és lobogója (1941) as "Győr, Győr-Moson and Pozsony Co.".
István Molnár, 20 October 2000

Gyor didn't adopt the Historical Flag but uses today the same colors (blue-red-white) which came probably from the CoA. The historical flag looks like banner of arms, so the question is did gyor had another CoA in those days ?
Dov Gutterman, 23 October 2000

No. Gyor CoA is the same as in the book. The book shows the CoA's too.
István Molnár, 23 October 2000

Vertical diband: the hoist half blue with a white cross throughout (width = 1/7th of the hoist); the fly half seven red and white horizontal stripes (the middle of which coincides with the horizontal arm of the hoist side cross).

1974 - 1989 Flag

by István Molnár

Note the differences in the background (blue v. white) type (vertical v. horizontal) and the different CoA between this flag and the current one.
Dov Gutterman, 9 October 1999

Győr city - "In the CoA of the city on the right side of the divided fields there is the old castle relates to the historical past, the three white stripes relate to the Danube, the Rába and the Rábca Rivers. On the left side there are a cog-wheel and a hammer relate to the industry of the city, the pen relates to the cultural traditions."

Reported Flag

by Zeljko Heimer, 8 January 1999.
CoA is taken from , located by Dov Gutterman

The flag of Gyor was reported on Dirk's Flag Collection by Dirk Schonberger that was hosted by CESI back then - it was simple white flag in ratio 2:3, with CoA in the middle and underneath the name of the city.
Zeljko Heimer, 8 January 1999

If I remember rightly, the flag I reported was seen by me in some TV report from Gyor, several years ago. It may be that the flag with the coloured edges was not officialized back then, or that it was the "less ceremonial" flag that was hoisted - or that I simply failed to notice the borders on the quick glance on the TV.
In any case, the edged flag looks much better, and is much more in tradition of the Hungarian flags.
Zeljko Heimer,30 July 2000

The flag without blue and red triangles on the edges is wrong and not official.

School Flag

I located an photo of flag in .Isn't it the city CoA on the flag ?
Dov Gutterman, 25 September 1999

From what I can understand, this is the flag of a school in Gyor. It is indeed the city CoA or, at least, it seems that the city CoA is part of the school emblem. Compare it with the flag of Gyor above.
Zeljko Heimer, 28 September 1999
