On 1 August 1972 the city of Hemmoor and the municipalities of Hechthausen and Osten formed a comprehensive municipality.

According to the minicipality’s Hauptsatzung from 19 November 1996, last updated on 7 February 2002, there is no municipal flag. §2 only mentions the existence of a coat of arms and a seal. There is however used a flag. In the public session of the municipal council on 28 June 2006 at TOP 5 is mentioned “a flag with the municipal coat of arms”, not a municipal flag, which was ordered by the council due to strong interest of the citizens. You can see an image of this flag at this webpage. There is a photo of members of the “Schwebefährverein” proudly presenting the flag.
Description of flag:
It is a green over white horizontal bicolour with the municipality’s coat of arms in the centre. (Green and white are also the basic colours of the flag of Cuxhaven county.)
