Official flag

The flag of the province of Luxembourg is the flag of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg red over white over blue, with in over the blue and white part the coat of arms, surmounted by a ducal hat. The arms are a red lion rampant, two-tailed, yellow nails, tongue, golden crown, background ten pieces of blue and white.

The arms of the Belgian province of Luxemburg are identical to those of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg.

Provincial colours

The colours were taken from the arms. These colours were not fixed. The sources are:

  • A chart called Vlaggen der Belgische Provincies - Drapeaux des Provinces Belges (Flags of the Belgian Provinces). This is not dated, but to judge from the font face used, it is from the 1920s or 1930s.
  • Some Dutch atlases and books about the provinces show another set, published by Rudi Koot in Vexilla Nostra [vxn] #185 (1993) p. 32-33

Provincial Governor's honorary flag

[Governor's honorary flag]by Mark Sensen

I have some xerox copies of sheets which seam to come from a book (bilingual Dutch and French) containing regulations (for the Navy maybe?). It contains a sheet with the honorary flags of the governors of the provinces, adopted by Order in Council of 28 October 1936.
It includes a construction sheet. The flags are 150x150 cm. Each stripe is 50 cm. The shields are 43.5 cm. wide and 50 cm. high excluding 3.75 cm for the point of the shield. The shields are in the center of the black stripe.
