Until 1920 Neusiedl am See was part of Moson county in Hungary, and called Nezsider. From 1920-1938 it was in Burgenland, Austria, from 1938-1945 in Ostmark, Germany, and 1945-now in Burgenland, Austria. Its Croatian name is Niuzalj. The settlement became a town in 1926.
The Town Flag Stadtfarben in 1926 was devised green and white. The coat of arms is shown and described in the web page (in German).

István Molnár, 6 March 2002

The Österreichische Städtebuch Burgenland [dea96] describes not only the coats-of-arms of the towns, but also the town colours, that are derived from the respective arms. How these are actually used and since when, is not described in the book. Most probably the flags would be similar to other Austrian municipal flags, i.e. vertical flags (hanging flag, "Banner" or "Knatterflagge") striped in the colours, and showing the coat-of-arms.

  • Neusiedl am See: Green-White (since 1926); before that Red-White (I doubt the existence of town colours before 1926)
