Nouveau Larousse Illustré, Dictionnaire Universel
Encyclopédique (7 volumes, published in Paris, 1898-1904) shows the flags of the main Belgian cities, then based on the traditional colours of the cities.
Three flags are shown for Hasselt, the first horizontally divided white-green-white-green, the second identical but with three white six-pointed stars in each green stripe, and the third vertically divided green-white-green-white.
