[Flag of Schleitheim] image by Pascal Gross

Gules, an ox head sable lined white.
António Martins, 15 October 1998

Is the friendly fellow on the flag of Schleitheim supposed to be an aurochs, or urus, like the one on the flag of Uri? Or does she acknowledge the local dairy industry? Does anyone know, at this late date?
John S. Ayer, 16 January 2001

[It's an ox, not an Auerochse (Ur). We know this because the emblem is derived from the arms of Ludwig Ochs, the reeve from 1559–69]
