The original image shows the flag hanging vertically (hoist in the top of the picture) and a wodden pole is visible at the viewer's left hand; the pole tip protrudes in the finial position; red sleeve. The flag design suggests this flag was supposed to be flown from a vertical pole.

Engelsburg means "city of the angel" in German.
