Bredenbek Municipal Coat of Arms

The red shield is divided by a silver bend wavy superimposed by a blue bendlet wavy.
Meaning:
The meaning of the municipality is "broad creek". Thus the arms are canting. The bend is symbolising the broad valley while the bendlet is symbolising the watercourse. The colours are those of Schleswig-Holstein.

Felde Municipal Coat of Arms

The shield is divided per fess. Above in a silver (= white) field is a red plough. Below in a blue field is a silver (= white) threefold leaf surrounding a bud.
Meaning:
The threefold leaf probably had been some kind of an escarbuncle like the "nettle lea"f of Holstein and the "Glevenrad" of Kleve. This version is a sign of the Swawe kin, aka Schwabe kin. Later this sign was newly interpreted as a plant. The Swawes had been owners of Klein Nordsee Manor, to which the municipality belonged until 1806. The blue colour is representing Eider River and the local lakes Westensee, Felder See and Flemhuder See. The plough is representing the rural character. The colours are those of Schleswig-Holstein.

[Melsdorf coat of arms] image by Jörg Majewski, 26 Oct 2008

The shield is divided by a silver (= white) bend sinister wavy into blue over red. All figures are silver. Above is a bee, below is a megalithic tomb.
Meaning:
The colours are those of Schleswig-Holstein. The tomb is alluding to local excavations from the Neolithic Age and thus a proof of settlements since about 4000 years. The bee is symbolising local beekeeping.

Ottendorf Municipal Flag

[Ottendorf municipal flag] 3:5 image by Jörg Majewski, 29 May 2006

It is a blue over white over blue horizontal triband with ratio approx. 1:4:1. The municipal coat of arms is in the centre of the white stripe.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 13 Jan 2013

Ottendorf Municipal Coat of Arms

The shield is divided per pale. The dexter half is divided per bend crenelly into silver (= white) over red. The sinister half displays in a blue field a silver (= white), wooden lattice, which is placed above the door of half-timbered farmhouses and shows a diamond superimposing a saltire, all in a rectangular frame. This special pattern is called Bauerntanz, (literally: farmers' dance) by the locals.
Meaning:
The dexter half is displaying the arms of the von Stampe family, who died out in the 16th century. Ottendorf was first mentioned in 1288, the owner then had been Thetbernus de Stampe. Members of this family had been the local rulers for more than 200 years. The lattice is symbolising the continuity of rural life. The colours are those of Schleswig-Holstein.

It is an armorial flag.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 13 Jan 2013

Quarnbek Municipal Coat of Arms

Under a silver (= white) chief crenelly in a red field is a silver (=white) transmission gear, a special part of the transmission system of a watermill. The chief is made from silver (= white) and blue fesses wavy.
Meaning:
Although Quarnbek is already mentioned in the book of towns of the city of Kiel in 1282/1283, there are no common symbols affiliated with the municipality as a whole, which was consisting of six villages and many small hamlets in the past. Thus the gear and the waves are canting. The gear is representing the historical flour mill (Lower German: Quarn) and the waves are symbolising the Mühlenbach creek (Lower German: Bek). The existence of the mill is proven until 1723. The embattled chief is alluding to an ancient moated castle.

The shield is divided per bend. The dexter half is blue divided by five silver (= white) barrulets wavy. The sinister half is displaying a red squirrel in a silver (= white) field. The squirrel is holding a black nut between its forepaws.
Meaning:
The main colours are those of Schleswig-Holstein. The dexter half is symbolising Westensee lake. The squirrel is taken from the arms of the Lords of Westensee, the local rulers in the 13th and 14th century.
