Overview

Esztergom is located in Komárom-Esztergom County. It was the capital of the former Esztergom County till 1920 (The northern part of the county like Komárom county, annexed to Czechoslovakia by the Treaty of Trianon) and 1938-1944. The southern part of Esztergom County was unified with the southern part of Komárom County in 1925. After the Decision of Vienna (1938) the northern and southern parts of the county united. The Treaty of Paris (1947) reannexed the northern part of the county to Czechoslovakia. Southern parts of the counties was unified again. Between 1950-1992 the name of the county was: Komárom County

I saw 5 flags in Esztergom in summer, and I saw them today again. They are:
The Hungarian National flag
The red-white stripes like the 1941 Historical Flag - the light red is the correct version.
The red-white stripes with the Coat of Arms of Esztergom (see above)
A white flag with the old Hungarian Coat of Arms (Árpád Stripes) (See: Flags in use)
A white flag with the old Hungarian Coat of Arms (The Silver Cross on the Green Hills) (See: Flags in use).
