The Flag

Based on the Res. No. 8/1991 (V.23.) of the city. No data of ratio. I guess it is horizontal. No more data in the resolution.
István Molnár, 8 August 2001

The proper shade of blue is lighter. Regulation of coat of arms and flag (in Hungarian): www.e-savaria.hu

Its proportion is 1:2 (but it is not mentioned in the regulation). Both horizontal and vertical variants are used.
