In fact, the minister-president uses a 30 × 30 cm federal flag with a black and red border and the coat of arms of the Saar on the whole. The minister[s?] use the same flag but with a gold fringe around the flag, dimensions 25 × 25 cm. The directors of some state (Land) authorities use the same flag but with a silver fringe, dimensions 20 × 30 cm. Only the minister-president actually uses its flag, and on very rare events. Source: personal and legal archives, with legislation and official documents from the German Länder, as well as the informations of Jürgen Rimann, the best German specialist for all the car flags in the world and a very reliable source.
