[Bendestorf (municipal) banner] 5:2 image by Klaus-Michael Schneider, 28 May 2007

It is a blue over white bicolour. The ratio between the blue and the white stripe is estimated 6:13. On the bottom end is a black inscription "Luftkurort" (first line) "Bendestorf" (second line). The line of partition of both colours is superimposed by the coat of arms. This one is obviously made for publicity purposes. I spotted this banner on 12 April 2007.

Bendestorf Coat of Arms

The shield is divided per bend sinister. The dexter chief shows a golden (=yellow) sun with twelve rays in a blue field. The sinister base shows a black millwheel with four spokes and eight paddles above a blue fess wavy.
Meaning:
The sun is alluding to the importance of the climatic spa (German: Luftkurort). Millwheel and fess wavy are reminding on the old local watermill.
