Description

The article by Erich Dieter Linder, Die Flaggen deutscher Landkreise (Flags of German counties), in Der Flaggenkurier no. 2, 1996, pp. 4-10, shows a hanging flag, format 2:1. A horizontal flag version also exists (according to Falko Schmidt). The colors are taken from the arms, the cross from the territory of Pyrmont. Pyrmont belonged to the principality [since 1918 republic] of Waldeck until it was transferred to the province of Hanover in 1922 by popular vote. Flag adopted 30.11.1959, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website.

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms were granted on October 30, 1929. The arms show the lion of the Counts of Everstein, who until 1429 ruled most of the county (...). The cross is taken from the arms of the Counts of Schwalenberg, who ruled over Pyrmont until 1494. Later the area was ruled by the Princes of Waldeck.
