20. Banner of the Komturia and Town of Engelsburg (Pokrzywno), led by the Komtur, Burkard Wobek. Composed of brothers and hired hands.

The original image shows the flag hanging vertically (hoist in the top of the picture) and a wodden pole is visible at the viewer's left hand; the pole tip protrudes in the finial position; red sleeve. The flag design suggests this flag was supposed to be flown from a vertical pole.

Engelsburg means 'city of the angel' in German.
