[3] e-mail from municipality to Karl Palfrader (with flag photo), 7 February 2004
[4] e-mail from municipality to M. Schmöger (claiming the nonexistence of a flag), 22 October 2007

The official grant of the flag was only on 17 March 2004, but the e-mail with flag photo sent to Karl Palfrader dates from 7 February 2004; furthermore, the flag photographed was definitely not new. Strangely, the municipality claimed in 2007 that it has no flag at all [4]; until now my repeated requests to resolve this problem have not been answered.
