Schleswig-Flensburg Flag

This flag is taken from Erich Dieter Linder, Die Flaggen deutscher Landkreise (Flags of German counties), in Der Flaggenkurier no. 2, 1996, pp. 4-10, and coloured according to the description there. The format there is 1:2. The two lions stem from the Duchy of Schleswig and appear in similar form in the arms as shown in Ralf Hartemink's webpage. Adopted 3 Oct 1977, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website.

Schleswig-Flensburg Coat of Arms

From Ralf Hartemink's webpage: The arms are derived from the old arms of the Duchy of Schleswig, which showed three lions. The two lions each in a separate field, symbolize the two former districts. The waves in the base of the shield symbolise the Baltic Sea and the many inlets and bays in the district.

Flensburg-Land Flag

[Flensburg-Land County (Schleswig-Holstein, Germany)] 3:5 image by Falko Schmidt and Klaus-Michael Schneider, 22 Oct 2019

It was a blue over white over red horizontal tricolour with stripes of equal width. The coat of arms was in the canton, superimposing the blue and white stripe.

Flensburg-Land Coat of Arms

Shield parted per fess, above Or a lion passant Azure, armed and tongued Gules, beneath Azure, five heraldic roses Argent, barbed and seeded Or and ordered 3:2.
Meaning:
The county belonged totally to the Duchy of Schleswig. Thus a lion of the Schleswig arms had been chosen for the upper half. The roses are symbolising the five districts of the county. They are called "Harden" in Danish and had been districts for the local militia first and finally administration and juridical units.
(editorial note: a harde is the Scandinavian equivalent of the English hundred, a former subdivision of a county, organizing local jurisdiction and yeomanry militia)

The arms were approved on 11 July 1946 by the British Military Government. The county applied for the flag in 1948, which however had never been approved.

Schleswig County Coat of Arms

Shield Or, seven barrulets wavy Vert, from flanches two piles Azure, charged with barrulets wavy Argent; chief wavy Azure, charged with a seagull volant Argent.
Meaning:
The arms are symbolising the location of the county between Schlei, a local firth, and Eider River. Seagull and piles are symbolising North Sea (bigger waves) and the Baltic (smaller waves). The golden and green colours are symbolising the rural character, the grainfields and the pastures. The blue and golden colours are also representing the Duchy of Schleswig.
Sources: letter of State Archive, sent on 12 September 2000 and
Stadler 1964, p.80
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 22 Oct 2019

The arms were approved on 12 June 1930 by Prussian Minister of State. The county submitted a draft of the flag in 1932 and according to the State Archive of Schleswig Holstein the flag was in use.
