Municipal flag

According to mail from the city of Wiltz, the city is using two flags one is the flag of the city, which is white with the coat of arms of the city in the middle.

Cantonal flag

The other flag, more interesting, is the flag of the canton of Wiltz and is a banner of the arms, that is a yellow flag (ca 2:3) with a red stripe at the top. Interesting because cantons in Luxembourg aren't and have never been administrative units, legal entities, and for this reason cannot have coats of arms and flags. However for various reason a need to symbolise the cantons appeared in the past and more or less fantasy coats of arms appeared. This is the first time that I hear about a cantonal flag in Luxembourg.
