Unna county (Northrhine-Westphalia)
Description of flag:
The flags ratio is 3:5. It is a red over white horizontal bicolour with the county's coat of arms in the centre.
Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess. Below is the Markian chequered bar. Above is a red demi-lion issuant.
Both elements are symbolizing that the county's territory belonged completely to the counts of Mark.
Authorized: Veddeler says that the flag is used. The coat of arms however was granted already on 25 May 1938 by Prussian government.
