    If it's hanging from a wall (or in this case, hanging from Svip's signature) sideways, it is Ulm.

    I think you've got the colors wrong. The one that is normally down should be on the left
    "'Religious faith.

    Nicely done.
    It was fun to see the Monthy Python sketch, discussed here earlier, being on top of the youtube-suggestion list to the right of the video, apparently not a great many video's out there with the name Ulm in it

    Singing along with the anthem makes this AAR so much more atmospheric.

    Wait - Ulm has the black part above, right? In that case, the colors are right. Tilt your head to the left, it's the correct flag.

    No. Flagpole is always on the left, so every flag is turned 90° clockwise, when hung from above. You must tilt your head to the right.
