The flag of Möriken-Wildegg is canting with the moor's head (Mohr in German) but the German blazoning uses the word Negerkopf.

Möriken-Wildegg – old flag

Wildegg has a different flag. I live in Wildegg just under the castle, and the flags (especially the Möriken flag) have always been controversial. The flag of Wildegg has a white background and is adorned with red ornamental "grapes". Red and white were found in the shield (picture) of the von Effinger family that lived in the castle. There are vineyards, so I assume that this is why the "grapes" were chosen. Sometimes you will see the emblem with the moor and the grapes jointly on a yellow background [see above]. So far, I have only seen this graphic depicted on the community website or on joint publications of the sister communities Möriken-Wildegg. However, when there is a festival or parade of some sort, both flags adorn the streets.
