Elbing Hanging Flag - 14th Century
(vertical hoist)

[Elbing 14th Century (Germany)] Image by Phil Nelson

Znamierowski 1999 [zna99] shows several interesting flags of the Port Cities of northern Europe. These are derived from gonfanons, originally red in color. The flags, in a banner form [i.e. hanging flags], were flown from the stern of the vessels, the mast carrying the gonfanon of the colors. The oldest of the series, from the mid-13th century, that of Hamburg, was followed among others by Elbing in the 14th century.

White-red bicolor with crosses in opposite color in each field [i.e. counterchanged]. Cross bars slightly larger than the vertical ones. Same as the flag of the Komturia Elbing.

Elbing Flag - 14th Century
(horizontal stripe variant)

[Elbing 14th Century, alternative (Prussia, Germany)] Image by Jorge Candeias

Red-white bicolor with crosses in opposite color in each field. The first one upside down.
Norman Martin, 20 January 1998

The German editors of Norie and Hobbs 1971 [noh71] added two charts (which were not originally in Norie and Hobbs 1848 [noh48]) with German flags that were important over time. One of them is no. 25 Flüger: Elbing 1424, as the above flag but crosses slightly potent instead, and placed fesswise and extended horizontally to a long flying flag. (If this is really from 1424, it is a fifteenth century flag.) I believe a Flüger is a pennant of which the part near the hoist fixed to a piece of wood, and that is indeed how these are pictured in Norie and Hobbs 1971 [noh71].
