Description of the flag

The city hall of Valenciennes flies two flags:

  • the municipal flag of Valenciennes is red with a golden lion, from the coat of arms of the city : the lion should have blue tongue and claws, but I could not see them on the flag.
  • the banner of arms of the Belgian province of Hainaut (instead of French Hainaut, which has a different coat of arms) : gold, four quarters : 1 & 3 : black lion; 2 & 4 : red lion, quarters separated by a black line.

Olivier Touzeau, 2 May 2000
