~1:20 | stripes 1+2+1
by Zeljko Heimer
Flag adopted 21st January 1977
Red-yellow-red triangular pennant, ratio ca. 1:20. Source: Album des Pavillons 2000. Some sources show this pennant with a yellow stripe of double width, similarly to the national flag was that ever official?

The pennant is shown as having stripes of equal width in the 1977 decree. The original red-yellow-red pennant of 1785 did have a wider central stripe (plus a hoist panel with the arms). I ignore when did the change take place, possibly the 1785 pennant was used until 1931 and the 1936-1945 decrees made the stripes of equal width (and removed the panel).
