City of Hennigsdorf

Hennigsdorf is an industrial town in Oberhavel County, directly bordering Berlin. The city has a flag and a banner, adopted in 1993. Both show blue-white-green stripes with the arms. The lower part of the arms symbolises the steel industry of the town. Source: Günther 1995 (Erwin Günther, Ostdeutsche Stadtflaggen (1): Land Brandenburg, in Der Flaggenkurier, no. 1, 1995).

The flags of the city Hennigsdorf, state Brandenburg, shown in your site is wrong! The arm at the flag ist a mistake. The bird is not a stork! The bird is a common heron (lat. ardea cinerea). The colour of the bird is grey.
According to the city council of Hennigsdorf the flag is official valid, but not in use. I live in Hennigsdorf, but I have never seen the flag flying.

Here the correct version of flags:

"Hauptsatzung der Stadt Hennigsdorf:

2
Wappen, Flagge, Dienstsiegel

(1) Das Wappen der Stadt zeigt unter grünem Wellenschildhaupt, aus dem linken Schildrand wachsend, einen silbernen Reiherkopf mit einem goldenen Fisch im schnabel, in silber schwebend einen blauen Amboss, begleitet von zwei blauen, aufrecht zugewendeten, unten durch goldene Schleifen verbundene Sensenblätter.

(2) Die Flagge zeigt die Hennigsdorfer Farben Blau, Weiß, Grün..."

The Colours of the arms are:
shield Argent
head Vert Pantone 356
fish and bow Or Pantone 116
common heron Grey Pantone 402
tongue of heron and fish Gules Pantone 185
anvil and scythe Azure Pantone 549

The city uses a logoflag instead of blue-white-green.
