White-red bicolor with crosses in opposite color (i.e. counterchanged) in each field, cross bars slightly larger than the vertical ones.
Norman Martin, 20 January 1998

The Flag of Elbing Norman Martin describes is quoted in the Banderia Prutenorum manuscript as "Flag of Elbing citizens, under which some mercenaries fought". Another Elbing flag has the following caption: "Second flag of the city of Elbing, carried by the Hauskomtur Ulrich von Stoffeln". In this case the crosses are of slightly different shape.
