Introduction to Municipal Flags in Brandenburg

The first five issues of Der Flaggenkurier featured a series by Erwin Günther about city flags in East Germany. The first four parts covered cities in Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt. Part 1, the first one dealing with Brandenburg, is Günther 1995 (Erwin Günther, Ostdeutsche Stadtflaggen (1): Land Brandenburg, in Der Flaggenkurier, no. 1, 1995, pp. 11-17) and is available online (German text only).
Part 2, also dealing with Brandenburg, is Günther 1996c (Erwin Günther, Ostdeutsche Stadtflaggen (2): Land Brandenburg, in Der Flaggenkurier, no. 2, 1996, pp. 11-16).
I sent drawings of the flags to Andreas Herzfeld, president of the DGF, who also manages the Der Flaggenkurier website, and obtained his permission to send them to FotW too. The flags were mostly made by colouring the drawings in Der Flaggenkurier according to the descriptions in the text, therefore my own contribution to these flags is small and only of technical nature.
During the times of the German Democratic Republic city flags had no official status, only unofficial flags existed and were sometimes created for special occasions like anniversaries. Only in 1990 were city flags officially admitted again.
