Description

At http://www.flickr.com/photos/legolam/367102886 one can see a photo of L-Imdina (Malta) with a white flag with crowned coat of arms. The flag shown at the top of this page is a red/white banner of arms.
Olivier Touzeau 5 May 2007

Zooming in on the image shows the crown (with four visible towers) in shades of yellow and a vey small and dim "Città Notabile" under the shield.

L-Imdina was the ancient capital of Malta.

The Rabat municipality on Malta island is the suburb of L-Imdina. I believe Rabat means suburb, while L-Imdina (pronounced imdina, but cognate of Medina) is a walled city.

In French médina is used as follows, from Petit Larousse Illustré:

médina (from Arabic madina): Old city - as opposed to the modern European new city - in the Arab countries, mostly in Morocco.
I believed most traditional cities in Morocco were fortified, so your translation as "walled city" might be appropriate.

Banner of Arms

[City of Mdina (Malta)] 3:5 image by António Martins

Blazon: Per pale Argent and Gules. These arms possibly stem from Count Roger Hauteville's, which were the base also for the national flag.

I spotted the city flag of L-Imdina in November 2000. It was its banner-of-arms - proportions 3:5, as near as I can tell - the old undefaced white-red vertical bicolor.
