Malbork city flag
In the World Encyclopedia of Flags, by Alfred Znamierowski, 1999, p. 233
are some Polish municipal flags. I've used the Coat of Arms of Malbork on Adam
Kromer's page for this image.
Malbork (German: Marienburg in West Preussen) received townrights
in 1276. It was the seat of the Grand Master of the Teutonic Knights 1307-1457.
Polish since 1466; to Prussia 1772; assigned to Poland by the Potsdam Conference
in 1945. It is in North Poland, Malbork county, Pomorskie vojvodship, with
(1981) 34.892 inhabitants.

Malbork historical flag?
Malbork: I guess this is only the Teutonic castle's historical flag: White,
with a gold Scandinavian cross, bordered with black and with edges. Centered
on the cross sideways, a gold shield with black eagle (seems like a rendition
of the german coat of arms). A dent above and under the cross on
the fly. I saw the flag displayed vertically, so that the shield
is normally viewed.
