County Flags / Kreisflaggen

Schleswig-Holstein, Germany's northernmost state, has eleven counties, all of which have flags, and I was able to get information on five of them. In general, the designs are more varied than those of Rhineland-Palatinate. Sources: Stadler 1964-1971 and Reissmann 1997. You can find a map of the counties in this webpage.

Angeln Region / Landschaft Angeln

[Angeln Region (Schleswig-Holstein, Germany)] image by by Pascal Vagnat

The flag of Landschaft Angeln (Angeln region) in Schleswig-Holstein (Germany) appears in their website, including an image of an actual flag. Angeln is a peninsula between the Flensburger Busen and the Schlei river with in the north Flensburg and in the south Schleswig. It is supposed to be the home country of the Angles tribe, [which with the Saxons invaded England and] from which [the term] Anglosaxon is derived. (...) The region's coat-of-arms can be seen in this webpage. The shield is divided into 9 parts, which stand for 8 old divisions (Harden) of Angeln - left to right:
Husbyharde, Munkbrarupharde, Nieharde, (Neueharde not included), area between Kappeln and Brodersby, Kappeln-Harde, Struxdorfharde, Satrupharde, Mohrkirchharde, Füsingharde.
