Freienwill Municipal Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per fess. Above in a blue field is a golden (= yellow) oak leaf connected with two acorns and flanked by two ears of grain of the same colour. Below in a golden (= yellow) field is a blue bridge.
Meaning:
The division of the shield into equal parts is symbolizing the merger of the villages of Kleinsolt and Kleinwolstrup in 1974. The new municipality gave itself the name of a traditional settlement core loated in Kleinwolstrup. The grain is symbolizing agriculture. The bridge is crossing the local Kielsau creek in Kleinsolt. The oak parts are symbolizing Kleinwolstrup and its woods. The colours are symbolizing grain and water and they are furthermore the traditional colours of the duchy of Schleswig.

Municipality of Husby

Husby Municipal Flag

[Husby municipal flag] 3:5 image by Jörg Majewski, 8 Apr 2006
adopted 18 July 1984

Description of flag:
The ratio is 3:5. It is a yellow over blue over yellow horizontal triband with ratio approx. 1:6:1. In the centre of the blue stripe is a yellow house standing on four poles without any windows. The roof is covered by shingles and flanked by two crosses, one at each gutter.
Meaning:
The house is taken from the arms. It appeared in 1450 on the seals of the Husby subdistrict (Harde). The house is canting, because the name of the municipality means "settlement near an (important) house". It is probably the image of a very old wooden church, because Husby was mentioned as having a church already in 1319 and being the capital of the subdistrict. The colours are those of the duchy of Schleswig.

The flag was approved on 18 July 1984.
