It is a blue banner. The coat of arms is shifted to the top.
Darmstadt District , state Hesse
banner approved on 17 December 1971
details based on the presentations of Klaus Günther with kind permission
The municipality flags are shown mostly in banner form in Hesse.
Jörg Majewski, 2 June 2006
Shield parted per fess; beneath parted per fess of Gules and Or; above parted per pale, at dexter Or three chevrons Gules, , at sinister Argent three chevrons Gules.
The arms are based on the oldest seal of the local council from the 17th century. The arms are based on elements from the arms of former ruling families. The red chevrons on gold are the arms of the Counts of Hanau, the chevrons in silver of the Lords of Eppstein. The lower half shows the arms of the Lords of Münzenberg-Falkenstein.
The arms were confirmed in 1858 by Grand-Duke Ludwig of Hessen.
