[Flag of Freienbach] image by Pascal Gross

On red three striding yellow lions one above the other.

The symbolism is closely related to the historical connection to the Duchy of Swabia, which has had the three striding lions as so-called "Staufer lions" on its shield and flags since the 13th century. The reference to the duchy comes from the Ufenau island saint Adelrich, from his mother Reginlinde and a later monastery abbot, who is said to have also belonged to the ducal family of Swabia.
