Municipal flag of Ostende - Image by Ivan Sache, 18 November 1991
The municipality and town (Stad) of Ostende (70,000 inhabitants) is the capital city of the arrondissement of Ostende.
The flag is horizontally divided red and yellow.
The flag was adopted on 2 September 1985. That flag has been known since at least the XVIIth century. Wilson's "Flags at Sea" [wil86] has a wimpel for Ostend, and an Ostend Fighting flag (p. 68, flagchart of William Downman, 1685-86), and on p. 69 an Ostend Ensign.
