Municipality of Bendestorf

[Bendestorf municipal flag] 5:2 image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 28 May 2007

It is a blue over white bicolour. The ratio between the blue and the white stripe is estimated 6:13. The ratio of flag is probably 5:2. On the bottom end is a black inscription "Luftkurort" (first line) "Bendestorf" (second line). The dividing line of both colours is superimposed by the coat of arms.
Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per bend sinister. The dexter chief shows a golden (=yellow) sun with twelve rays in a blue field. The sinister base shows a black millwheel with four spokes and eight paddles above a blue fess wavy.
It is said that there exists a similar official flag, but I have no image. This one is obviously made for publicity purposes. I spotted this flag on 12 April 2007.
