Photo of municipal flag of Mombasa.

I was wondering if you could get the Mombasa flag on the FOTW page. I am especially interested in the one used at the turn of 19/20th centuries under the British rule. If there was no flag then, the coat of arms would also be useful.

I think that the only British flag used in Mombasa in the late 1800s / early 1900s would have been the Union Jack. The local flag was probably the Red Flag of the Sultan of Zanzibar, as Mombasa was within his mainland territories.
