    Previously Reported Flag

    by Zeljko Heimer

    Ratio: 2:3. Adopted: Unknown. Capital: Kaposvár.
    The arms are the same as of former (A-H) county of Somogy (Sümeg),
    Zeljko Heimer - from FAME

    Sümeg is not correct. Somogy County in German is "Komitat Schomodei" and in Latin "Comitatus Simighiensis".
