[Flag of Münchenstein]
by Pascal Gross

Argent, a Monk habited unhooded Sable and shoed Gules passant.

This is not a monk at all - see Münchenstein's home page.  A guy named Münch built a castle here c. 1270. That castle (Stein) gave the village its name.  Blazon in German is "Wappen: Seit 1946. Auf silbernem Grund ein schwarzer, barhäuptiger, rot beschuhter Mönch. Das Wappen entspricht dem Siegel des bischöflich-baslerischen Ministerialengeschlechts Münch. Flagge: weissschwarz (Mühlemann, 1991).

CoA: Since 1946. Argent, a Monk habited unhooded Sable and shoed Gules passant. The arms are like the seal of the episcopal-Baselian family of bonded nobility Münch. Flag: WN.

I guess this flag is canting: Münchenstein = Monk's stone
