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.

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."

The CoA originally was given by King Charles (Károly) III on 21 May 1719, when the city became Free Royal City (again).
The CoA was removed in 1948 (cmmunist era).
It was readopted after 1989. Resolutions about the using of the CoA and the flag and modifying res.:
16/1993. (VII. 10.)
25/1998. ( VII.27.)
6/2000. (II. 18.)
