Brunsbüttel City Coat of Arms

Shield Gules a broad bend sinister wavy Argent, over all an anchor in bend sinister, which is superimposed by a spade in bend. Both charges have counterchanged tinctures.
In 1970 the city of Brunsbüttelkoog merged with the municipalities of Brunsbüttel and Westerbüttel and the municipalities of Brunsbüttel Parish: Mühlenstraßen, Osterbelmhusen, Ostermoor und Westerbelmhusen. The new city of Brunsbüttel overtook flag and arms of the preceding entity of Brunsbüttelkoog. The anchor is symbolising shipping and industries. The spade is symbolising dyking and agriculture in the former parish. A bend sinister wavy from the arms, symbolising the Kiel Canal, is omitted in the flag.
