Description of the flag

Based on a description in [kra81]:

Divided vertically - blue, red and white (in the proportions 2-1-2).
From the description of the arms it is taken that the white is in the middle.

(French) Drapeau: Parti bleu, blanc, rouge (2/5, 1/5, 2/5) (English) three vertical stripes blue, white, red (2/5, 1/5, 2/5).

Coat of arms

BoA of Schaan
by António Martins, 21 Mar 2001

Per pale, azure and gules, a pale argent between an ear of wheat slipped or and three bars wavy conjoined argent.
Jan Oskar Engene 11 Apr 1996, quoting [kra81]

The arms are divided vertically into two fields separated by a white pale. On the first field appears a golden ear of corn on azure. On the second a silver wave on red. The colours are the colours of the national flag. The corn symbolises agriculture, the wave the River Rhine. The arms of Schaan were adopted on 12 June, 1938. Pascal Vagnat, 21 Nov 1995

Wrong report

Wrong flag of Schaan
by António Martins, 12 Apr 1999

According some source, this flag is horizontal red - white - blue. It is possible that it is in fact a banner, not as flag.
Jaume Ollé, Apr 1999
