Protocol Office Article 2012.04.01 Ver­ti­cal flags with out­rig­ger (not of­fi­cial­ly au­tho­rized)

This type of flag is attached not only to a flagpole but also at the top to an outrigger, or horizontal arm extending at right angles to the flagpole.The advantage of this type is that the flag is extended and clearly visible even when there is little or no wind. 

According to Section I nos. 1 and 3 of the Directive concerning the German flags, only the formats of federal flags and federal institutional flags described there are authorized (see also Section V paragraph 1 (4) of the Federal Government Decree). This means that the federal flag and federal institutional flag in vertical format with outrigger is not permitted for official use by federal, Länder or local authorities, nor by public-law corporations, institutions and foundations under the supervision of federal authorities.
