Description of flag
The ratio of the flag is 3:5. It is a plain silvery grey flag with the coat of arms in its centre.
Description of coat of arms:
In a silvery grey field is a jumping black stag, facing the dexter side, above a red heraldic rose having a green core and five green calyx leaves.
Was given in 1980. The stag is symbolizing the former name Hinthbergen, where "Hinth" is another word for stag. The rose is taken from the seal of the Todendorp family, whose name is even nowadays present in two parts of Himbergen, Groß-Thondorf and Klein-Thondorf.
The coat of arms was granted on 18 February 1981 by Uelzen county.
