Fahne der Landespolizei Schleswig-Holstein

Source: Lupant 1993 [and/or Lupant 1995a]. Is pictured and [a] photocopied photo is added, primary source is Gerd Stolz Geschi[ch]te der Polizei Schleswig-Holstein[s] (1978) and photo and letter from Mad. Barbara Konze, Innenminister des Landes Schleswig-Holstein. But you are right about points of star: must be 12. I used a template of eight points for several police stars and I used it by mistake in this image.

This Fahne (Colour) is shown on a photo in Stolz 1978, also reproduced in Lupant 1995a. This is also a ceremonial colour as the other Polizeifahnen. The photo shows it in use during the swearing-in of police officers in 1965. The Colour is green with the (silver) 12-pointed police star in the center and golden eagles in the corners. I made my image according to the photo and the drawing in Lupant 1995a. However, the drawing in Lupant 1995a is not totally correct, as the two bottom eagles should point downwards. I took the eagles from Jaume Ollé's image.

Car Flag for the Minister of the Interior and the State Secretary in the Ministry of the Interior


Square green flag with double border (the image is without a border but I believe that the border is white (inside) and blue (outside). In the center is a stylized argent police star (similar to a flower) of 10 points and within it the Schleswig Holstein shield.

Jaume Ollé (?), 1 Sep 1998

The Verordnung zur Durchführung des Gesetzes über die Hoheitszeichen des Landes Schleswig-Holstein (Regulation on the Implementation of the Act on Symbols of the State of Schleswig-Holstein) of 10th August 1957, published in the Gesetz- und Verordnungsblatt für Schleswig-Holstein (Schleswig-Holstein Acts and Regulations Bulletin), 1957, p. 105-109, mentions a Polizeistandarte (police standard) that may be used by the Minister of the Interior or the ministerial director in the Ministry of the Interior as a car flag. There is no picture of it, though. The description is rather vague, "Die Polizeistandarte zeigt auf grünem Grund den Polizeistern mit dem Landeswappen (the police standard shows on a green field the police star with the state coat-of-arms).
