Description

A St. George's Cross charged with a golden coronet.
António Martins, 31 Oct 1997

My image is based a little more closely on the arms, where the points of the crown stick out from the bars that form the cross. Sources: flag from Staack 1997, arms from Stadler 1966, p.39.
Stefan Schwoon, 28 Feb 2001

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

(...) In the 13th century the present arms appear. The cross on the arms is derived from the arms of the State of Trier, to which the city belonged at the time. The crown is described as a Crown of Mary, St. Mary being the patron[ess] saint of the city.
The only time the city used other arms was during the occupation under Napoleon. In 1810 arms were granted with in the lower half two wavy bends joining in the middle (for Confluentia, as in Koblenz the Mosel and Rhine rivers join). (...) After the fall of Napoleon the old arms were restored.
Literature: Stadler 1966, p.39

Banner

[City of Koblenz banner (Germany)] 3:1 image by Stefan Schwoon, modified by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 22 Apr 2012

The ratio is approx. 3:1. The white flag is divided by a red off-centred cross superimposed by a golden (=yellow) coronet. It is an armorial banner.
Source: image based on photo of Dagmar Holzäpfel, flag was spotted by her on 1 October 2011.

According to Gunnar Staack there exists no official city flag of Koblenz. The information had been given to him by Central Services Department (Hauptamt) on 30 May 2001.
