Ulm City Flag

A black-white bicolour, derived directly from the arms which are also black over white. Source: Staack 1997.

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

Ulm was a free imperial city and thus used the imperial eagle on its seals. (...) The present arms are known since 1351. At first the eagle held a small shield with the arms, later the arms appear as a breast shield. Since the 17th century the eagle becomes less important and the arms regularly appear without the eagle. In 1803 the eagle was finally removed. The arms have not changed since.

Ulm Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess into black over silver (= white).
Meaning:
Ulm had been the capital of the Duchy of Swabia since the 11th century under the rule of the Staufen kin. Ulm had a big castle, its own territory and and a settlement (Bürgersiedlung) beneath the castle. Ulm gained the title of an Imperial City in 1274 by privileges, granted by King Rudolf I. By Napoleon I Ulm was given in 1802 to Bavaria and in 1810 to Württemberg. The first prints of the city seal from 1244 display the imperial eagle. Later on his neck was flanked by star and fleur de lis, the symbols of St. Mary. The nowadays coat of arms appears first on seal in 1351. The eagle holds the shield by his claws. In rolls of arms from the 15th century the divided shield is found as an inescutcheon upon the eagle's breast. According to Neubecker the current colours had been first fixed in 1462, when Ulm had been the head of the Confederation of Swabian Imperial Cities. Then the divided shield had been painted upon the Confederation's Banner. Also Ulm's military colours in the war against the Swiss had the tinctures black and silver. Sibmacher (1605) displays the divided shield alone. The eagle was omitted for good since 1803.
