Description of flag:
The ratio is 3:5. The hoist side is quarterly divided into red (1st and 4th quarter) and white (2nd and 3rd quarter. The quarters are superimposed by a red, sinister bendy anchor, which is superimposed by a white, bendy spade. The flyend is horizontally divided into red over white.
In 1970 the city of Brunsbüttelkoog merged with the municipalities of Brunsbüttel and Westerbüttel and the municipalities of Brunsbüttel Parish: Mühlenstraßen, Osterbelmhusen, Ostermoor und Westerbelmhusen. The new city of Brunsbüttel overtook flag and arms of the preceding entity of Brunsbüttelkoog. The anchor is symbolizing shipping and industries. The spade is symbolizing dyking and agriculture in the former parish. A bend sinister wavy from the arms, symbolizing the Kiel Canal, is omitted in the flag.
