adopted c. 1980

It is a plain silvery grey flag with the coat of arms in its centre.
Coat of Arms:
In a silvery grey field is a jumping black stag, above a red heraldic rose having a barbed and seeded green.
Meaning:
Was given in 1980. The stag is symbolizing the former name Hinthbergen, where "Hinth" is another word for stag. The rose is taken from the seal of the Todendorp family, whose name is even nowadays present in two parts of Himbergen, Groß-Thondorf and Klein-Thondorf.
The coat of arms was approved on 18 February 1981 by Uelzen county.

The three bales are symbolizing the villages of Jelmstorf, Addenstorf and Bruchtorf, forming the municipality. The wagon is symbolizing that the municipality is located at the old "road of salt". The wheels can also be found in the arms of Samtgemeinde Bevensen. They are symbolizing that Jelmstorf is part of Bevensen. The mountain is symbolizing an field of ancient graves in Addenstorf.
