Description

The coat-of-arms of Ix-Xewkija is [blazon] Or a fess Gules between two thistles Proper.
António Martins
, 1 March 2000

The Ix-Xewkija local council website shows a picture of the banner-of-arms flag in this picture of the first elected council (1994-1996). However, several much more recent photographs in this webpage show a local flag which is not a banner of the arms but a white flag with the (shield-shaped) arms on it.

Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Heraldry website explains, "Xewkija has thorns on its arms as Xewkija comes from xewk which means thorns".

If the yellow-with-red-stripe-and-two-thistles flag was already in use in 1994, when was this possible former flag used?
