1:1 | 30 × 30 cm
by Marcus Schmöger, 24 May 2002
The Law on State Symbols of 7 November 2001 shows the Standarte des Saarlandes or "Standard of the Saar" as a square flag, 30 × 30 cm of golden-yellow colour with a black outer and red inner border, the borders each of 1/10 of the flag width; in the center the coat-of-arms (dimensions 10 × 12 cm) with the white border. This is used as a car flag for the Ministerpräsident (prime minister) and the Landtagspräsident (President of the State Parliament).
This is the only remaining car flag in the new 2001 law (...) two other car flags probably long out of use, anyway have been abandoned.
