City of Uetersen / Pinneberg County/ Schleswig-Holstein
Description of flag: According to "Kommunale Wappenrolle Schleswig-Holstein" [kwr06] there doesn't exist any flag of the city. But the locals use a Schleswig-Holstein tricolour (horzontal blue-white-red) with the coat of arms superimposed on the centre of the flag. The ratio is 3:5.
Description of the coat of arms: In a red shield is a silver (=white) gate without any door. The wall has 6 pinnacles. There is a silver (=white) tower on each side, having two windows each and topped by  silver (=white) triangular roofs. Between the towers there is the nettle-leaf of the Counts of Holstein. In the open door at the base there stands a silver (=white) S-shaped object, which might show Virgin Mary and Jesus, standing upon a golden (=yellow) lying moon crescent and flanked by two golden (=yellow) stars on a red background. Below the door is a blue field probably symbolizing water.
