Introduction

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
"Saxe-Weimar was a rather small Duchy until 1690, when it was combined with the Duchy of Saxe-Jena and in 1741 with Saxe-Eisenach. This much larger and powerful Duchy was promoted to Grand Duchy by the Vienna Congress in 1815. At the same time the new Grand Duke received a large part of the Duchy of Saxony for his help against Napoleon. Since 1903 the addition 'Weimar' was removed and the state became the Grand Duchy of Saxony (the former duchy of Saxony was now a province of Prussia) until 1920 when it was incorporated in the new State of Thuringia..."

The flag was adopted in 1813 with the colors ordered black-green-yellow. In 1896 (...) the order of the colors was changed.

Siebmacher 1878 gives the Landesflagge as black-green-yellow. It mentions that the grand duke uses it with the small arms in the middle stripe.
