Municipality of Aumühle (Duchy of Lauenburg county; Schleswig-Holstein)
Description of flag:
The flags ratio is 3:5. It is a green over white over black horizontal tricolour with the coat of arms in its centre.
Source: Hauptsatzung der Gemeinde Aumühle vom 19 June 2003; §1.
Description of coat of arms:
In the centre of a green shield is a black wheel of a watermill within a silver (=white) roundel. Three silver (=white) wavy lines, forming a bottoms-up "Y" are connecting the roundel with the shields edges. The roundel is also surrounded by three silver (=white) oak leaves.
The green colour is symbolizing the beauty of the landscape and the woods. The wavy lines are marking the creeks Bille and Au, which are merging in Aumühle, running a watermill (at least in the past). The oak are added, because the family of Otto von BISMARCK lives in Aumühle still today.
