This flag appears at Dr. Széll Sándor: Városaink neve, címere és lobogója (1941) as "Szeged, Csongrád Co.".

Szeged flag is a banner of arms (The CoA kept its place even during the Communist regime with red star added). It won't surprise me if the same flag is also in use today.

1974-1989 Flag

by István Molnár

Szeged city - "The today CoA of the city adopted the eagle from the old CoA. The pattern's blue field with the silver stripes relates to the Tisza and Maros rivers. The gold sun is the symbol of the uninterrupted renewal and relates to Szeged as a city of the sunshine and as the center of the intellectual life of the country region."
