The name of the city: Győr megyei jogú város means Győr city with County Rank The pictures made by me from the office of Győr city. Győr is located in the territory of Győr-Moson-Sopron County but it is not a part of the county. The flag was adopted in 1990.
István Molnár, 27 July 2000

I located a site: <> with two flags for the town of Győr.
Jarig Bakker, 31 July 2000

This is a memorial flag. The front side of the flag is same as the official Győr flag. the back side is a script: "A GYORI TUZOLTÓSÁGNAK 1870-1990 ADOMÁNYOZTA GYOR VÁROSA" means "FOR THE FIRE-BRIGADE OF GYOR 1870-1990 PRESENTED BY THE TOWN OF GYOR"

The Previous Flags are correct versions of the flag based on the No.6/1998 (III.1.) Resolution. The flag is 150x120 cms, the Coat of Arms is 60 cm high. Ratio of the horizontal flag: 5:4, the vertical flag: 4:5.
Some old resolutions about the symbols of Győr are:
No.2/1974 (TK.2/1974)  'communist-era (1974 - 1989 flag).
No.1/1990 (III.15.)
No.9/1990 (VIII.15.)
No 53//1990 (VII.6.)
István Molnár, 15 Febuary 2001

The dimensions of the flag were removed from the text of the regulation, and this flag is used now in 2:3 and 1:2 ratio, as well.

Historical Flag

image by António Martins, 28 Febuary 2001

This flag appears at Dr. Széll Sándor: Városaink neve, címere és lobogója (1941) as "Győr, Győr-Moson and Pozsony Co.".
István Molnár, 20 October 2000

Győr didn't adopt the historical Flag but uses today the same colors (blue-red-white) which came probably from the Coat of Arms. The historical flag looks like banner of arms, so the question is did Győr had another Coat of Arms in those days ?
Dov Gutterman, 23 October 2000

No. Győr Coat of Arms is the same as in the book. The book shows the Coat of Arms too.
István Molnár, 23 October 2000

Vertical diband: the hoist half blue with a white cross throughout (width = 1/7th of the hoist); the fly half seven red and white horizontal stripes (the middle of which coincides with the horizontal arm of the hoist side cross).

1974 - 1989 Flag

Note the differences in the background (blue v. white) type (vertical v. horizontal) and the different Coat of Arms between this flag and the current one.
Dov Gutterman, 9 October 1999

Győr city - "In the Coat of Arms of the city on the right side of the divided fields there is the old castle relates to the historical past, the three white stripes relate to the Danube, the Rába and the Rábca Rivers. On the left side there are a cog-wheel and a hammer relate to the industry of the city, the pen relates to the cultural traditions."

Reported Flag

image by Željko Heimer, 8 January 1999.
Coat of Arms is taken from <>, located by Dov Gutterman

The flag of Győr was reported on Dirk's Flag Collection by Dirk Schönberger that was hosted by CESI back then - it was simple white flag in ratio 2:3, with Coat of Arms in the middle and underneath the name of the city.
Željko Heimer, 8 January 1999

If I remember rightly, the flag I reported was seen by me in some TV report from Győr, several years ago. It may be that the flag with the coloured edges was not officialized back then, or that it was the "less ceremonial" flag that was hoisted - or that I simply failed to notice the borders on the quick glance on the TV.
In any case, the edged flag looks much better, and is much more in tradition of the Hungarian flags.
Željko Heimer,30 July 2000

The flag without blue and red triangles on the edges is wrong and not official.

School Flag

I located an photo of flag in <> .Isn't it the city Coat of Arms on the flag ?
Dov Gutterman, 25 September 1999

From what I can understand, this is the flag of a school in Győr. It is indeed the city Coat of Arms or, at least, it seems that the city Coat of Arms is part of the school emblem. Compare it with the flag of Győr above.
Željko Heimer, 28 September 1999
