Norddeich (City of Norden; Aurich county; Lower Saxony)
Description of flag: It is a white over green over red horizontal tricolour with the coat of arms in the centre.
Description of coat of arms: In a silver field is a red flash. The shield has a green chief, showing a silver fish armed golden.
Meaning: The flash is probably symbolizing Norddeich radio station, which was formerly very famous in Western Germany for sending the Xmas-greetings to German sailors away from home.
Source: I spotted this flag on 14 September 2009 at Norddeich main street.
