Erroneous flag of Luxembourg - Image by Jarig Bakker, 18 June 2005, after Vlaggenalbum, 1914
The Vlaggenalbum, published by Droste's cocoa-factory in Haarlem in March 1914, shows the flag of Luxembourg with four horizontal red-white-blue-white stripes.

I have seen this as Landesfarben in I think an edition of Die Orden, Wappen und Flaggen aller Regenten und Staaten, together with the flag of Luxembourg. Probably it was interpreted as a flag by the editor of the Vlaggenalbum.

A comparable source, a flag chart published by Ruhl, Leipzig (end of XIXth century - beginning of XXth century) gives the same "flag".
