Budakesser Gemeinschaft

I have found a photo of a flag at <>. This flag is different from the flag of the settlement. The inscription is German on the flag. I THINK this flag and coat of arms is the flag and coat of arms of the German Ethnic Minority Council of Budakeszi/Wudigess.

I was born in Hungary (1947) and am living in Germany with my family since 1989. My ancestors were living, since 1724 in Budakeszi/Wudigess. Therefore this homepage about this nice little town. Among ten tousands of German immigrats the first Albrechts left Oberstadion, near Ulm Germany to Hungary after the Turkish troops were beaten. During the 150 years Turkish occupation Hungary lost almost ist total population. After the WW II a great part of the Hungarian citizens with German origin, was expelled from its home back to Germany. So happend it also in Budakeszi/Wudigess. The expelled people from Budakeszi/Wudgess have established a society "Budakesser Gemeinschaft". They have designed this flag. Their own flag is what you have found in my web site.
About the flag - The inscripiton is really German: Wudigess Budakszi (its German name Wudigess), Ofner Bergland (Budai Hegyvidék = mountains around Buda, where you can find Budakeszi/Wudigess, as well). The Flag shows the roman chatolic church in Budakeszi/Wudigess, and the mountains arround. The highest is the János hegy/Johannisberg (John Montain).
Two dates are besides the church: 1698 and 1946. 1698 is the year of the arrival of the first German colonists Budakeszi/Wudigess. 1946 is the year , when a lot of Hungarian citizens with German descent were expelled from Budakeszi/Wudigess.
