Horizontal red over yellow with swallow tail. Ratio c. 1:2 (also reported yellow over red, but I think that is not correct).

Flag adopted 17th December 1891, abolished 1935, readopted c.1947, abolished 25th April 1952

A yellow-red-yellow triband. Officially adopted 17 December 1891. Continued in use until approximately 1925. Readopted as Landesflagge of the State of (South) Baden c.1947. Abolished as a result of the merger into Baden-Württemberg 25 April 1952.
Norman Martin, May 1998

Ströhl 1897 [stl97], p. 89, says that a new Landesflagge (horizontally yellow-red-yellow) was adopted simultaneously with the royal standards, on 17th December 1891. Ströhl points out that the former Landesflagge was horizontally red-yellow, and that the newly approved flag reflected better the bend Gules in the arms of Baden, at the same time providing a more distinct flag from other red-yellow flags (for instance Lippe, the pre-1880's flag of Schaumburg-Lippe etc.).
