Bergedorf is a district of Hamburg. It was annexed by Lübeck in 1420, and belonged to Hamburg since 1868, becoming part of this town in 1937. The flag of the former city of Bergedorf was green over white.

I saw Bergedorf's flag and I by pride cannot survive to not have my home borough be included: Harburg. It is one of Hamburg's boroughs (Bezirk). Until 1937 it was an independent town in belonging to the Prussian province of Hannover. Harburg's flag is somewhat similar to the one of Hamburg. The lion in the door of the fortress represents Henry the Lion, duke of Saxony and Bavaria, a main antagonist of Frederick I Barbarossa.

Ochsenwerder is a southeastern suburb of Hamburg along the Elbe river. Its name translates as "Oxholm". Its flag can be bought at this site for only 80 Euros (nur $ 100) - a horizontal bicolor white over red, with in the center the (oxen-less) Coat of Arms.
The flag reminds me of the Sloten-CoA (with at leat one ox) in the Netherlands.
