Billerbeck (Westphalia) local branch of DJO. The obverse of the pennant is black; the white Odal rune is shown here in a white double circle. The reverse is white with a different DJO symbol, a black Maltese-like cross derived from the cross of the Teutonic order on a white shield within a black disk surrounded by the black inscription "FERN DOCH TREU" (far away, but faithful). Along the hoist there is the vertical inscription "DJO BILLERBECK" in black letters. At the upper and lower edge of the flag there is a thin black-white bordure.
