I remember seeing the Rhine Republic flag as being a horizontal tricolor of green-white-black.

V. Ward, 7 September 1996

I have seen an image of the flag of the short-lived Rhenanian Republic in an old book, but I am not sure of the first colour (blue or green — it was difficult to distinguish). The details of this flag were published in The Flag Bulletin, but the issue is now out of print. This may be the flag of the Rhine Confederation (not Republic) of 1806.

Jaume Ollé, 11 September 1996

It should be noted that most of the records of territories of the Confederation of the Rhine were destroyed, probably because the various princes were embarrassed by their collaboration with the French. As a result much of the flag data of the Napoleonic period is difficult to come by. It should be noted that similar difficulties in getting a clear picture also happened in later times, for example in 1918-21, in that case primarily because of the fluidity of the situation.

Norman Martin (?), April 1998

The first republic was created around 1797 by the French and was named Republique Cisrenane (Cisrhenian Republic). The flag was horizontal blue-red-green (red-blue-green horizontal and blue-red-green vertical variants are also known). In 1801 the Rhine Confederation was created, under Napoleon, without a flag of its own. In 1921 the Rhenish republic was proclaimed.
