Flag in use in 1986 by Mayor and Aldermen (B&W)
The municipality of Huissen is known to use two versions of its municipal
flag; I have written to the municipality about this, but so far received
no adequate answer.
Hans van Heijningen, 22 May 2003
Description: two equally wide horizontal stripes of white and red, with
in the center the municipal arms, with a yellow citycrown of four mural
towers (mural crown).
This flag is not official, but is being used as such since c. 1954-'55. The colors are derived from the municipal arms. The mural crown is not used on the municipal CoA (granted 18 Mar 1816), but it has been in use since 1348, when the Huissen received town-rights from the Duke of Cleve.
