Long Description:
"Per bend dentilly Sable and Argent." (Flags of the World)

This became the flag of Bubendorf in 1943. It used to be the coat of arms of the medieval noble family von Bubendorf who owned a castle near the village in the 14th century.

I noticed that the division line of the flag does not go to the corners, only nearby, while the coat of arms has the division line exactly through the top corner.

I found this flag at a coffee shop near the town hall. The town flag was in a very uncommon set, between the flags of the cantons Basel-Land and Uri. An Uri flag is hardly ever seen in this part of Switzerland; maybe the former home place of the shop owner...
