[4] e-mail from Dienten school, 4 August 2009 and 5 October 2009 (with flag photos)

The flag situation in Dienten am Holzkönig is somewhat difficult. There is one b/w photo showing a municipal flag, probably red-white with the municipal arms [2].
However, the municipal office claims that they do not own a municipal flag, only the school does own one [3]. The school indeed has a red-white municipal flag [4], which does differ somewhat from the flag shown in [2]. Probably, the original flag owned by the municipal office has disappeared sometime and only the school-owned survived.
