Armorial Flag of Satrup

[Satrup municipal flag] 3:5 image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 1 Oct 2007

Description of flag:
The ratio of flag is 3:5. It is an armorial flag.
Source: 1(2) of Hauptsatzung of the Municipality of Satrup, version 19 December 1990
Description of coat of arms:
In a red shield is an image of the so called Satrup knight in silver (=white) with black lining. The knight has mounted a jumping horse, facing the dexter side. He wears full armour including a sword and holds a shield in his left and a lance in his right hand.
Meaning:
The image of the knight is very old. The image of the knight is based upon a relief from the early medieval. The original image can be seen on a stone at the entrance of the local parish church.I The coat of arms was adopted probably under British military administration after WW2, but no one knows exactly. It is sure, that it was used since 1949.
