The national tricolour with the coat of arms set in the middle. The caption
Flaggenbuch (1939) does not clearly explain
if this flag was also used on land as the State or War Flag, possibly. The coat
of arms used here is from Christian Siemer's site (www.christian-siemer.de).
Christian shows six different versions of the coat of arms from 1859 to 1948.
Its usage on the national flag (and other flags too) need further research. The
site dates the usage of this coat of arms as 23.06.1921 - 08.01.1948. Its use on
the flag is probably lesser than that (at both ends). The motto on the ribbon
says "NIHIL SINE DEO" - Nothing without God, I guess in the sense "Nothing
[could be accomplished] without [the help from] God".

The national tricolour with the coat of arms in the middle. As differing from
1922(?) pattern shown in Flaggenbuch, here there are the full arms, with crowned
mantle, in the middle. I used the image of the arms from Christian Siemer's site
(of course, for the royal flag above as well).
