Samtgemeinde* Amelinghausen (Lüneburg county; Lower Saxony)
Description of flag:
The flag's ratio is 3:5. It is a black over red over yellow horizontal bicolour with the coat of arms in its centre.
The colours are taken probably from the flag of Lower Saxony, which are the same as those of entire Germany.
Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess. The chief shows in a golden (=yellow) field the upper half of a blue rampant lion, red armoured and red tongued, holding a short red sword in his left praw. The base shows a golden (=yellow) branch with three acorns in a red field.
Source: Jürgen Sprunck, an official of the Samtgemeinde, unfurled the townhalls flag for me on 26 October 2007.
*A "Samtgemeinde", also called "collective municipality" is a combination of several municipalities to an administrative community in Lower Saxony.
