Last week I was at Debrecen. Last year I had seen the Previous Flags , and now they readopted the blue-yellow-blue Historical Flag which was flying in the city (ratio: 2:3). I think it was readopted in summer 2001.

Debrecen city - "In the CoA of the city there is a Phoenix relates to the renewal. The red tongues of flame relate to conflagrations devastated the city, but symbolise the freedom too. The open book emphasizes the school-town type of Debrecen and the progressive traditions of its intellectual life. The cog-wheel symbolises the existence of the socialist industry and the energetic development of the industrialization of the city."
