Standard of the Prince c.1890-c.1895


[Standard of the Prince c.1890-c.1895 (Germany)]
by Jaume Ollé

A horizontal bicolor yellow-red. At the center the crowned lesser arms of Lippe. In use by 1870. Abolished 1918.

Norman Martin, April 1998

This form of the prince's standard was used between c.1890 and c.1895 by Prince Weldemar. With reversed colors (red over yellow) and a different crown this was the state flag c.1856 - c.1876/78. The shield is always reproduced as of rounded type (H. G. Ströhl, Deutsche Wappenrolle, 1897).

Mario Fabretto, 27 August 1998

Ströhl 1897 describes this standard [as a former standard].

[Standard of the Prince c.1895-1918 (Germany)] ~5:7
by Theo van der Zalm and Santiago Dotor

Ströhl 1897 shows a more recent standard, six horizontal stripes red-yellow with the lesser arms (shield with rose and ducal [?] crown) in the middle. Neubecker 1933 gives a similar standard, however the six stripes are yellow-red and places the arms in the canton.

...with the crown slightly touching the top of the flag.
