Marzahn-Hellersdorf flag

The silver (white) wavy 'bend sinister' and the green field in the Marzahn-Hellersdorf arms symbolise the small Wuhle river and the Wuhle valley, used as recreational area by the merged districts. The wheat garb and the cogwheel appeared on the arms of the former Marzahn district. The five golden (yellow) wheat ears stand for the five villages of Biesdorf, Kaulsdorf, Mahlsdorf and Marzahn and the former district of Hellersdorf and also symbolise the agricultural tradition of the area. The cogwheel symbolises industrial development in the early 20th century which brought machinery and electrical industries to Marzahn. Adopted 7 Oct 2003.
