Cycling towards the Danish-German border, I saw the flag of Bremervörde, green over red. Probably has a version with arms as well.

Peter Hans van den Muijzenberg, 27 August 2001

Stadler 1964-1972 says the flag of Bremervörde is green and red with the arms, so I guess that it indeed exists. (...) I wonder where the colour of the green stripe in the flag is taken from, though. Bremervörde has town rights and is situated in Rotenburg county.

Flag Variant with Coat-of-Arms

[Municipality of Bremervörde, variant with arms (Rotenburg County, Lower Saxony, Germany)] 3:5
by Stefan Schwoon

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:

The arms are based on the oldest known seal of the city, which is known since 1389. The seal and the arms show the image of St. Peter, patron saint of the State of Bremen. The Archbishops of Bremen built a castle, around which the city developed. The composition was officially granted as arm in 1948.

Literature: Stadler 1964-1972.
