Flag adopted 3 Oct1977, coat-of-arms adopted 12 Nov 1974
From Ralf Hartemink's International
Civic Arms website: The arms were granted on November 12, 1974. The
arms are derived from the old arms of the Duchy of Schleswig, which showed
three lions. The two lions each in a separate field, symbolise the two
former districts. The waves in the base of the shield symbolise the Baltic
Sea and the many inlets and bays in the district.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1971.
