Divided yellow and green, bearing the arms. Ratio 3:5. The height of the arms is 5/9 the height of the flag. The choice of the flag and the arms are discussed in detail on the Ludwigslust official website (in German).

Flag adopted 20.02.1997, according to Dirk Schönberger's Administrative Divisions of the World website. From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The arms were granted on September 04, 1997. The horse symbolises the famous horse breeding station Redefin, as well as horse-breeding in general. The horse was also part of the arms of several 13th century Counts of Schwerin.
The wavy division line symbolises the Elbe river.
The oak leaves symbolise the former districts.
The colours are derived from the colours of the former County Schwerin (red and gold) and the County Dannenberg (red, silver and green).
