Bad Laasphe or Laasphe is a town in North Rhine-Westfalia, c. 6,000 inhabitants, some 10 km northwest of Marburg. Its flag
appears (in black and white?) in this webpage.
I wrote to the Bad Laasphe city council and I got an answer from Rabea Schäfer:
"The flag of the city of Bad Laasphe is divided in two equally wide horizontal stripes in silver (white) and black and shows in the middle the coat of arms of the city. The city's coat-of-arms with description has been attached to this message."
From this I assume that the image I sent originally is in true colours. The attachment showed a coat-of-arms similar to the one on the flag.

Bad Laasphe is in Siegen-Wittgenstein county, North Rhine-Westphalia.
Note: Stadler 1972 describes the flag of Laasphe as "red, white".
