State Flag 1891
Reported in use 1848 and 1905

[State Flag (Bremen, Germany)] Type 1      [Bremen 1848 (Germany)] Type 2
images by Jaume Ollé
first adopted 13 November 1891

Like the 1891 Civil Ensign, but with a white rectangle covering the 4 center stripes with the great arms with a helmet crest. Officially (re)-adopted (as state flag) 13 November 1891. Present rule allows this pattern, but only with 12 stripes.
Norman Martin, 25 Feb 1998

The number stripes should be at least eight. The number of red and white stripes should be even. If the flag had twelve stripes, than in white rectangle was the Flag Coat of Arms, a modified version of the Greater Arms. If the flag had only eight stripes, the Middle Arms had been taken instead.
