Jens Pattke reported in the German vexillology mailing list about the flag of one of the Landsmannschaften (territorial or country associations) of Vertriebene (refugees from former German territories or formerly German-inhabited regions in Eastern Europe). He explained that the Landsmannschaft of the Transilvanian Saxons use a blue-red hanging flag (Banner) with the coat-of-arms. This was adopted 1932 and shows simply seven towers on a blue-red per pale field, thus different from the former Austro-Hungarian imperial and royal crown land of Transilvania (see for instance Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website).
