The ratio is 3:5. It is an armorial flag.
Klaus-Michael Schneider, 29 Dec 2012
Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per bend sinister. Above right in a blue field a silver (= white) fisher is standing in his boat. Below left in a golden (= yellow) field are three green leaves: of beech, of oak and of ash.
The leaves are symbolizing forestal riches. The sculpture of the fisher is a local monument in the centre of the municipality. The fisher is also symbolizing fishery as former main business line and the close connections between the inhabitants and the Baltic Sea.
