The wheelbarrow is alluding to peat cutting as important business line in the past in Ostenau. The interrupted bendlet is symbolising the Ostenau creek and the Ostenau Bridge, connecting Ostenau with Löwenstedt proper. The stripes in fly are representing seven neighbouring villages (not mentioned which ones).
