Description of the flag

Argent, a bear rampant between the majuscules "V" dexter and "R" sinister sable, armed langued and priapic in his virility gules.
The same flag as Innerrhoden with in addition the letters "V" and "R" on either side of the bear.
When a single flag or arms for both cantons is required, that of Appenzell Innerrhoden is displayed.
T.F. Mills, 28 October 1997

[An old banner of Ausserrhoden, probably 17th century (confirmed use 1743), with the golden letters "V" and "R" and the inscription "SOLI" (the continuation "DEO GLORIA" on the reverse side is lost). The letters "V" (U) and "R" stand for "Usser Rhoden"/"Ussroden" (Outer Rhoden). Location: Historical Museum, Herisau (source)]


Symbolism of the flag

The bear is a symbol of power, courage, might and virility. The symbolism of this particular bear is explained by its history. 
T.F. Mills, 28 October 1997


Alternate Design

  by António Martins

Angst (1992), "A Panoply of Colours: The Cantonal Banners of Switzerland and the Swiss National Flag" shows the V in the lower half of the flag and the R in the upper; the head of the V on an imaginary center line and the R resting on the base of this center line.
Phil Nelson, 14 October 1998

Flaggen, Knatterfahnen and Livery Colours

 

[Knatterfahnen]

  [Knatterfahnen]  

[livery colours]

by Pascal Gross

Flaggen are vertically hoisted from a crossbar in the manner of gonfanon, in ratio of about 2:9, with a swallowtail that indents about 2 units. The chief, or hoist (square part) usually incorporates the design from the coat of arms – not from the flag. The fly part is always divided lengthwise, usually in a bicolour, triband or tricolour pattern (except Schwyz which is monocolour, and Glarus which has four stripes of unequal width). The colours chosen for the fly end are usually the main colours of the coat of arms, but the choice is not always straight forward.

Knatterfahnen are similar to Flaggen, but hoisted from the long side and have no swallow tail. They normally show the national, cantonal or communal flag in their chiefs.
