Hungarians of Burgenland

Burgenland is home to more than 8,000 ethnic Hungarians. More than 30% of the inhabitants live in four settlements: Unterwart/Alsˇor, Oberwart/Felsoor, Oberpullendorf/Felsopulya and Siget in der Wart/Orisziget. They use the Hungarian flag on the Hungarian national holidays.

Croats of Burgenland

As far as I know, Croats in Burgenland consider themselves Croatians, and use Croatian flag or variation without the "crest" and smaller shield often in home made flags, though they may be some local flags. However, such flags would not be the national flags, but the flags of their societies and such. I believe that Burgenland Croat communities at least have several flags of their cultural societies. But, as I said, they can't be considered national flags.

Slovenians in Carinthia

Here is the website devoted to the symbols of Slovenians in Carinthia.
On the start page is shown the coat of arms in full colours. It depicts the so-called "Princes' Stone" - place where Princes of Slovenians in the time of Karantanija's existence were crowned.
The second page http://www.fuerstenstein.at/grb/C36 gives us a b/w picture of the vertical version of the flag and a description of it:
"The flag is blue with the coat of arms in the middle of it. Rectangular flag with 1:2 ratio. The height of the
coat of arms shouldn't be more then one third of the width of the flag."
