Description of the flag: It's ratio is 3:5. It is a quarterly divided flag. The upper hoist and the lower fly are white, the other quarters are red. The common point of all quarters is shifted to hoist (ratio est. 4:7). The point is superimposed by the coat of arms. In a red shield is a silver (=white gear with 4 spokes and 12 teeth.

I spotted this flag on 17 June 2006 at the edge of a park in Mölln.
