Colcrete - von Essen Gmbh & Co KG - The company is located in Rastede
with branches in Ückermünde and Ahrensboek. The business is water engineering,
dam building and protection of coastal area. The company was established
in 1860 by Martin Friedrich von Essen. The company began to erect mud dikes
and brushwood fences at river banks. In the 1960ies the colcrete mortar
process was invented in order to improve armouring of banks. In the 1970ies
matting and injection of concrete were developed. I guess Colcrete is the
name of a special processing of concrete. This name was added to von Essen
later, probably in the 1960ies. After having made longer tests at Braunschweig’s
technical university geotextile mats were developed in the 1990ies.

Former flag: It was a blue flag divided by a red centred cross fimbriated
yellow. In the lower hoist was a white, serifed inscription “vE”.
