inofficial flag

Description of flag:
It is a black over red over blue horizontal tricolour with a coat of arms in the centre, shifted to the bottom. The shield’s top edge is the top line of the red stripe. In the centre of the black stripe is the name of the village in white capitals.
Note: The flag was only used as a jack of local tourist ships. Probably Greetsiel has no village flag of its own.

In a silver shield is an a blue ancient ship of Hansa traders, with three masts, being topped by blue mullets. In the centre of the main mast is a black inescutcheon, carrying a golden harpy in a black field, surrounded by four mullets Or.
Meaning:
The inescutcheon is the shield of the Cirksena kin. The ship is symbolizing shipping and fishingas main business lines. The members of the Cirksena kin later on were made Imperial Counts (Reichsgrafen) and Princes of East Frisia. The blue mullets (= spur wheels) are also alluding to them and to the City of Norden. In Greetsiel had been the family seat and castle of the Cirksenas until the 18th century.
