Unterland and Oberland

On 23 January 1719, Charles VI made a principality of the county of Vaduz (now Unterland) and the seigniory of Schellenberg (now Oberland), which had been united since 1434.

Communal banners

I think we can take 3:5 as a standard for these flags, since 3:5 if the official ratio of the national flag, but these flags can also be 1:1, 2:3, or 3:1 or 2:1 if they are banners.

The official texts for the communes say that they can also use their coats of arms to make flags (banners of the arms). There are not flags with the coats of arms on them, like in Austria, but the communes could make them. In fact, the text doesn’t describe those flags, if they exist, but gives only the right for use the coats of arms as a basis for flags, that means that banners of the arms, Wimpel, etc. could be manufactured. In the case of Liechstenstein, the [commune] banners, if they exist, are vertical versions of the flags with proportions of ca 3:1 instead of 3:5, generally with vertical stripes. The state of Liechstenstein itself has a banner.

Communal flags’ usage

I’ve never seen a flag of Ruggell, in spite of living in Ruggell, just coats of arms. On official parties or holidays, we (in Ruggell) hoist the flag of our country and the ensign of our prince. In bigger towns like Schaan or Vaduz, the rule may be different.
