Car flags with vacuum feet

Of course, the production of carflags with a vacuum feet, that clings to aluminium or plastic car bodys, is also possible.

But vacuum feets hold a downside. They cling close to the car body for some time and then drop down abruptly.

For example: You drive on the freeway and the carflags stay savely in place. A few minutes later your drive through the city and a slight turn removes the carflag from the car. You certainly know that phenomenon from towel-rails in the bath. They cling and cling and cling, but suddenly they loose theire grip.

Therefore carflags provided with a vacuum feet are NOT qualified for road traffic.

New ensign for Luxembourg?

The president of the biggest Luxembourg parliament faction CSV (Chreschtlech Sozial Vollekspartei) Michel Wolter, informed the press about his intention to introduce a petition to the parliament, which suggests the replacement of the current Luxembourg ensign. The current ensign shows three horizontally stripes, just like the German ensign. But instead of black-red-gold, the Luxembourg colours are red-white-blue. This flag was established in 1972 and modified in 1993. At that time the usuall dark blue was replaced by the light blue Pantone 299C. The "Tricolore" was often accused of mistaking with the Netherlands ensign. Therefore many Luxembourger still prefer the "roude Léiw" (red lion). This flag shows a red lion on a blue-white field. The "roude Léiw" reffers to the 13th Century an was originally the family crest of the nobility of Luxembourg.

The suggestion made by Michel Wolter, to replace the "Tricolore" with the "roude Léiw", faces big support from the population, quite contrary to the parliament. According to a recent survey enforced by the radio station "RTL Radio Luxembourg", over 90% of the respondents agree with Michel Wolters suggestion. The chairpersons of all other parliament factions showed few appreciation for Michel Wolters advance. The only exception is Gast Gyberien chairperson of the ADR (Alternativ Demokratesch Reformpartei).


Should the ensign be replaced, we certainly assimilate the new motive to our assortment.
