Long Description:
"Gules St. Martin riding a horse halving his cloak to Beggar Or." (Flags of the World)

It is not very common that a reformed town has a saint in the flag. it is even more surprising that it was chosen shortly after the reformation in the early 16th century, when Flims gained independence from the bishop of Chur. Saint Martin was chosen, because he is the patron saint of the medieval church in town.

I found this flag next to the post office and bus station of Flims Waldhaus, a town district in the south of the municipality.
