Introduction

After the reintroduction of Länder in the German Democratic Republic in 1990 there were several flags that were used inofficially in Saxony-Anhalt. The simple black-yellow bicolor of Saxony-Anhalt (1946-1952) was probably the most common one. However in Anhalt (...) the old Anhalt colours were displayed. (...) For the reunification celebrations on 3rd October 1990 the organisation committee decided to use a flag vertically black-yellow (...). In Fläming, a region of Saxony-Anhalt, the regional flag of green-yellow was also used in 1990-1991. Sources: Schurdel 1995, Laitenberger and Bassier 2000, Kuhn 1991 and Günther 1996. (...) The law on the new symbols was passed 20th December 1990 and enacted 30th January 1991.

State Flag used on 3rd October 1990

[State Flag 1990 (Saxony-Anhalt, Germany)] 3:5
by Marcus Schmöger and Ralf Stelter

For the reunification celebrations on 3rd October 1990 the organisation committee decided to use a quite astonishing flag. It was a vertically divided bicolor of black-yellow with the arms of 1948-1952 in the center. The new Land had not yet adopted an official flag, so they used this design to distinguish the flag from the horizontal black-yellow Baden-Württemberg flag (fig. 8 in Kuhn 1991).

Marcus Schmöger, 7 March 2001

Was that flag ever used again? One would think that any official circumstance needing a flag between 3rd October 1990 and the date of approval of the current flag (when in 1991 was that, by the way?) would be an opportunity to use the vertically black-yellow flag.

Santiago Dotor, 8 March 2001

I do not know about the [later] use of the vertically divided flag. However, I would think that in most cases the old horizontal bicolour of black-yellow (used from 1946-1952) was used. At least in Saxony-Anhalt itself there would have been no problem with mixing the flag up with the Baden-Württemberg flag. However, in cases when all Länder flags were shown together, probably the vertically divided flag was shown (not very often, though).

Marcus Schmöger, 8 March 2001

Please note that the Saxony-Anhalt flag was divided vertically, but the coat-of-arms was slightly offcentered to the mast. Also the coat-of-arms had a white surrounding. According to the Ministry of Interior (Bundesinnenministerium) the flags in Berlin were 240 x 400 cm [i.e. proportions 3:5], but the manufacturer of those flags told that they were made in 200 x 335 cm [slightly over 3:5].

Also please note that there are no two hammers on the coat-of-arms but a hammer and a mallet.

In 1990 (...) in Anhalt, especially in Dessau (former capital of Anhalt) the old Anhalt colours were displayed, sometimes as a vertical flag with the old arms (1924-1935). Sources: Schurdel 1995, Laitenberger and Bassier 2000, Kuhn 1991 and Günther 1996.

Fläming Region 1990-1991

[Fläming Region 1990-1991 (Saxony-Anhalt, Germany)] 3:5
by Marcus Schmöger

In Fläming, a region of Saxony-Anhalt, the regional flag of green-yellow was also used in 1990-1991. This flag is about 100 years old and is based on a regional arms design. The yellow stands for sandy soil and the corn-fields, the green for the forests. Sources: Schurdel 1995, Laitenberger and Bassier 2000, Kuhn 1991 and Günther 1996.
