Börgerende-Rethwisch Municipality

Börgerende-Rethwisch Flag

[Börgerende-Rethwisch municipal flag] 3:5 image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 12 Mar 2007

It is a blue (FIAV-codeB-) over white horizontal bicolour with the coat of arms in the centre of the flag. The colours of the coat of arms are inverted to those of the flag.
Source: I spotted this flag on 8 December 2006 in Börgerende-Rethwisch in front of the firebrigade-station.

Börgerende-Rethwisch Coat of Arms

The shield is parted per fess wavy line. In the blue base is a silver (= white) fish (looks like a haddock or cod) facing the hoist. In the silver (= white) chief are two crossed red shelves connected with a black nail (depicted as a dot) and ending in heads of horses.
Meaning:
Those shelves are also today fixed on both ends of the ridge on top of the gables of farmhouses in Northern Germany from Flensburg down to the northern parts of Westphalia. In memory of Sleipnir, the horse with 8 legs, those crossed shelves were devoted to the pagan God Wodan (Odin in Scandinavia) in order to give protection.

Coat of Arms

[Hohenfelde municipal CoA] image by Klaus-Michael Schneider and Ivan Sache, 4 Apr 2020

Shield Or, a chestnut leaf Vert, issuant from base a mount Vert.
Meaning:
The hill is a canting element, as the name of the municipality means "location on a hill". The leaf is alluding to the many chestnuts besides the local alleyway. Furthemore it is representing a round village, the preferred form of settlement alongside the border between Germans and Slavic tribes. That form had a central square and a frontier of surrounding gables.

Retschow Coat of Arms

Shield Or a rooster passant Sable, chief embattled Gules, shield mantled reversed Vert, on either side charged with a grain ear Or, at dexter in bend, at sinister in bend sinister.
Meaning:
The chief embattled is alluding to Retschow castle, which was first mentioned in 1302. The rooster is referring to an urban legend. As in the neighbouring city of Neubukow during the carnival of 1729 a fire broke out, the rooster made a noise and warned the people of the village. The grain ears are symbolising agriculture.

Wittenbeck Coat of Arms

Shield parted by a bend wavy Argent, above left Azure three scallops Argent ordered 2:1, beneath Vert a sallow thorn branch Sable in bend with six leaves Argent and six seaberries Or.
Meaning:
The name of the municipality is derived from Lower German "Wittenbäk" (= white creek). The bend wavy is thus a canting element. Scallops, thorn and tinctures are alluding to the location on the shore of the Baltic. Furthermore the sallow thorn (Latin: Hippophae rhamnoides) is a typical plant in the area.
