webpage is written (roughly translated):
The municipal arms
Description: Palewise Azure and Argent, surmounted with a Well masoned from quarry stones with a wide edge, counterchanged.
The well in the arms of municipality of Wittenborn refers to the name of the municipality, and give the arms thereby the character of "canting" symbol. The division per pale of the arms into two equal fields makes clear that the current municipality grew together from two communities. The colouring of the arms in the two colours normally used in heraldry to represent water, Azure and Argent, refers tot he fact, that Wittenborn is located in the vicinity of the Mözener See, which forms the border on the south-eastern side of the municipal territory.
The flag shows "central on a hoistward blue and flyward white field the front white rear blue well from the municipal arms."
Wittenborn is c. 50 km west of Lübeck, area: 6,19 km2 with 774 inhabitants.
