The coat-of-arms (since 3rd July 1957) combines symbols for the burgrave of Nuremberg (quartered Argent and Sable), for the former Imperial Cities (eagle) and for Franconia as a whole (the "saw-tooth"). Since about 1980 an unofficial flag has been used, without approval by the Ministry of the Interior. This is horizontally divided red-white with the arms in the center. Source: Linder 1997 which is available online at the Der Flaggenkurier website. Further information at the Bezirk Mittelfranken website (only illustration of the arms) and at the CSU Mittelfranken webpage (illustration and description of the arms).

More recently I obtained information from the Bezirk to clarify the question of how the flag actually looks like, especially if it is used as a normal horizontal flag or as a hanging flag (Banner). The flag is only used as hanging flag (250cm × 80cm or 500cm × 150cm), with the arms just slightly offcentered to the top. Source: information from the flagmakers Fahnen Eckart.

Ippesheim and Ipsheim are two different municipalities, both in Neustadt/Aisch-Bad Windsheim county. Ippesheim has a red-yellow-red flag, Ipsheim a green-white-red one. The information on the flag of Ippesheim (which was presumably the source for the information on FotW) is in this webpage.
