On the Benevex-list Gerard Kuipers told us that the authorities in Kleve told him that the city of Kleve (Nordrhein-Westfalen) had no flag.
Pascal Vagnat noticed that the "Hauptsatzung" mentioned:
This is the "Hauptsatzung der Stadt Kleve" adopted on the 29th November 1994.
" 2
"(1) The city of Kleve has a coat of arms.
(2) The seal of the city of Kleve contains the CoA with a swan.
(3) The flag of the city of Kleve shows the colors red and white, and may contain the CoA".

Gunnar Staack just sent us the flag, directly from the city authorities, with and without the arms.

Is there some canting between the clover on the coat of arms (in German, Klee) and the name of Kleve?
Ivan Sache, 25 Jun 2003

Yes, on this page is written: "The arms connect the canting (Klever) clover-leaves for Kleve with the old lordly sign of the Count".
In the Lower-German ("Platt-Deutsch"- vernacular "Klever" (Dutch: klaver) = clover.
