Taufkirchen (Vils) Inofficial Municipal Flag


Flag without arms

Flag with arms

According to information from the Bavarian Main Public Record Office (letter of February 18th 1999) and from the municipality itself (letter of June 10th 1999) the municipality Taufkirchen (Vils) does not use an official municipal flag.

However, since the beginning of the 60ies a flag in the colours Red-Blue is in inoffical use; since the 80ies this has been used with arms, too. The knowledge, when and by whom the use of the flag had been decided, has obviously got lost in the municipal administration.

Flags in actual use are hanging flags in the proportions 16:5, with or without arms; the arms (if applicable) cover 73% of the flag width. The flag is not used on occasion of official flagging (e.g. Day of German Unity), but e.g. during the fun fair.
