[Flag of Lenk]
by Pascal Gross

Per fess Vert a Semi-Plate issuant from the Chief from which are flowing towards base seven streams of the same and Gules a Sword and a Distaff both of the second in Saltire.

Zeljko Heimer, 23 April 2002

This is not a sun depicted on the flag of Lenk but a half circle from which flow 7 sources (the 7 sources of the river Simme). In the lower part we have a distaff (in German "Kunkel" or "Spindel") and a sword (in German "Schwert") which allude to the fight of the women of Lenk against the foreign invaders.
