Flag of the canton of Wiltz

The second flag is the flag of the canton of Wiltz; it is a banner of the arms, that is a yellow flag (ca 2:3) with a red stripe at the top. This is interesting because cantons in Luxembourg aren't and have never been administrative units, legal entities, and for this reason cannot have coats of arms and flags. However for various reason a need to symbolize the cantons appeared in the past and more or less fantasy coats of arms appeared. This seems to be the first reported cantonal flag in Luxembourg.
