The flag is quarterly divided into blue (upper hoist and lower fly) and red (lower hoist and upper fly). The coat of arms is in the centre of the flag. Note that Stefan Schwoon displays a similar image with ratio 3:5. The colours of the flag are alluding to Oldenburg.

Ammerland County Coat of Arms

[Ammerland County arms] image by Jörg Majewski, 14 Dec 2007

Shield quartered, 1st quarter Or two bars Gules, 2nd quarter Azure a cross moline Or, 3rd quarter Azure an oak leaf Or with acorn of the same, 4th quarter Or two bars dancetty Gules.
Meaning:
The arms show in the upper part the arms of the State of Oldenburg, to which the district belonged. The acorn symbolises the large forests in the district. The fourth quarter shows the oldest arms of the counts of Oldenburg, two bars dancetty, which were changed in 1200 by Moritz von Oldenburg into straight bars as can be seen in the first quarter.
The cross in the second quarter was replaced by a cross moline, the more correct historical cross for the area around Spohle and Conneforde.
