Description

Höhere Kommunalverbände (higher communal associations) in North Rhine-Westphalia are a difficult subject, as their territories partially overlap. The Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe is basically congruent with the borders of the former Prussian Westfalen province. (...) A part of Westfalen-Lippe also forms the Landesverband Lippe.

The Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe uses a traditional flag for special occasions (the flag is prescribed in the statutes of 1986). It is the flag used by the former Prussian province of Westfalen, a bicolour white over red. However, usually the Landschaftsverband uses a logo flag containing, of course, much inscription and an outlined heart barely visible on a flying flag. The heart shall roughly symbolize the form of the territory and the closeness to the hearts of the people.
