Description of the flag

Based on a description in [kra81]:

A golden band on a blue background, horizontally so divided that the two blue outer stripes, of equal depth, are separated by a golden middle stripe of the same depth.
Or more simply: blue, yellow, blue horizontally.
Jan Oskar Engene 11 Apr 1996

The flag has three horizontal stripes blue-yellow-blue, of equal width. So the flags of Balzers and of Gamprin are identical. The official texts for the communes say that they can also use their coats of arms to make flags (banners of the arms). (Sources: [kra82] and the Decree of H.R.H., the Reigning Prince, granting a coat of arms and a flag to the commune of Gamprin, of the 30th April 1958)

Coat of arms

BoA of Balzers
by António Martins, 21 Mar 2001

The arms are azure with a golden griffon whose tongue, “mouth” and nails are red. These arms are the same as those of the Barons of Frauenberg, who owned a castle in Gutenberg at the beginning of the 14th century. The arms were adopted on 16 August, 1956.
