The flag of Lübeck is white over red these colours are used by many North German cities (for example Bremen and Hamburg). In the upper hoist corner is a black double headed eagle with red claws and beaks, and with a white over red shield.

After 1945, unlike [the other two prewar Hanseatic cities] Hamburg and Bremen, Lübeck was not re-established as a state [Land].
Norman Martin, 25 February 1998
Actually, according to Encyclopaedia Britannica, Lübeck was incorporated into Schleswig-Holstein in 1937, during the Third Reich regime.
