Treptow-Köpenick flag

On 21 Sep 2004 the Senate of Berlin granted a coat of arms to the district Treptow-Köpenick.
Description: "In Blau ein grünes Taukreuz mit getatzten Enden, versehen mit einem goldenen Stabbord, begleitet von zwei nach innen gewendeten aufrecht stehenden silbernen Fischen. Das Taukreuz belegt mit einem goldenen Schlüssel mit linksgewendetem Bart und 7 vierstrahligen Sternen (4:2:1). Auf dem Schild ruht eine rote dreitürmige Mauerkrone, deren mittlerer Turm mit dem Berliner Wappenschild belegt ist."

The elements of the CoA symbolise (like the colors) water and forests in the district. Many streams and lakes are valuable for recreation, but in the past they were useful for livelyhood and production. That is represented in Köpenick's arms: a standing key of Petrus with two fishes. Seven stars have also been taken from the Köpenick arms. The Tau-cross is derived from the Treptower arms, as well as the color green.
One can see the arms on the Berlin website.
