Probstei Subcounty (Amt Probstei)

Probstei Subcounty Flag

It is an armourial flag (banner of arms).
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 10 Feb 2013

Probstei Coat of Arms

The shield is divided per fess into silver (= white) over blue. Above is a red farmhouse. Below is a golden (= yellow) crozier with a broken shaft and 20 knobs filled red.
Meaning: The farmhouse is the predominant type in the subcounty having: a partial hip roof, bay of post-built structure with a big entrance (Grootdör, i.e. big door) and windows with semi-circular archs. This type is called Haupthaus (lit.: main house) and there are still 89 examples left in the subcounty having the status of monuments due to the Schleswig-Holstein Preservation Order (Schleswig-Holsteinisches Denkmalschutzgesetz). The crozier is alluding to the rule of the Benedictian nuns of Preetz Monastery for some 700 years. The broken shaft is symbolising the rule's end in 1920. The knobs, 17 in the beginning, are symbolising the municipalities of the subcounty. Those are: Barsbek, Bendfeld, Brodersdorf, Fahren, Fiefbergen, Höhndorf, Köhn, Krokau, Krummbek, Laboe, Lutterbek, Passade, Prasdorf, Probsteierhagen, Schönberg, Stakendorf, Stein, Stoltenberg, Wendtorf and Wisch. The knobs for Laboe, Schönberg and Stoltenberg had been added on 1 January 2008. The blue colour is symbolising the Baltic Sea. Common symbols of the Probstei are the broken crozier and the perch of the von Barsfelde family, which appear on several municipal flags. Blue and silver are the colours of the Probstei.

In 1202 Count(?) Albert of Orlamünde was enfeoffed by the Danish King as vasall of Holstein and Wagrien. A bit later he founded the Benedictian nuns' monastery in Preetz. The counts of Schauenburg were expelled but regained control over Holstein and Wagrien in 1225. Count Adolf IV reestablished the monastery of Preetz on 29 September 1226. The vasall Marquard of Stenwers had to cede the surrounding real estates to the monastery. Thus the Probstei became part of the dominions of Preetz monastery. The monastery purchased the surrounding villages as follows: Ratjendorf (1318), Passade (1373), Barsbek (1383), Fahren (1388) and finally Bendfeld (1421) Source: Municipal Roll of Arms Schleswig-Holstein Online

Barsbek Municipal Coat of Arms

In a red shield is a silver (= white) perch.
Meaning:
The colours of the arms are those of Holstein, the colours of the flag of Schleswig-Holstein. "Barsbek" means "creek of perches" and the arms thus are canting. The shield is taken from the arms of the von Barsbeke family. The colours were modified. The family sold one half of the village to the monastery in Preetz, which gained the other half a little bit later. The perch from these arms had become a symbol for the whole dominions of the monastery, which were called Probstei (provostey).

The shield is divided per bend sinister into red over silver (= white). Above is a silver (= white) broken crozier. Below is a blue bunch of purple moor-grass (Latin:Molinia caerulea).
Meaning:
The grass is a canting element. The location was first mentioned as "de Benvelde" (1264-1289) and later renamed into "to Bentvelde" , i.e. settlement on the field of purple moor-grass. The crozier is alluding to the monastery in Preetz, to which Bendfeld belonged. Bendfeld was the last village becoming a dominion of the monastery (1421), symbolised by the broken shaft.
