Flag near Hansering

This flag was topic of many discussions in the past. During the GDR the flag was painted red like communism. For some local politicians this colour was unacceptable after the revolution and German reunion in 1989/1990, because one could see the flag like a tribute to communism. For about 10 years nothing happened to the flag, several times there were initiatives to remove the flag completely.

Fortunately this never happened and I think the new colours are a good trade-off. The new bright colours are pretty nice and they bring some light into the city, which is never a bad thing I think.
