Höhere Kommunalverbände (higher communal associations) in North Rhine-Westphalia are a difficult subject, as their territories partially overlap. Part of the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe also forms the Landesverband Lippe - formerly state of Lippe - since 1949. It uses the traditional arms and flag of Lippe, namely the bicolour yellow over red, prescribed in the statutes of 1973. The flag is also widely used by the citizens.
