City of Oelde

The flags ratio is 3:5. It is a blue over white horizontal bicolour.
This version is the current official one according 2(4) of Hauptsatzung of the city of Oelde dated 17 January 2005.
Description of coat of arms:
In a blue shield is a silver (=white) lying moon-crescent topped by a silver (=white) 6-point star.
Meaning:
The coat of arms was used before 1890 and was granted by the Prussian king in 1910. The origin of the coat of arms is not clear. The moon however is said to be an attribute of St.John the Baptist, whose image could be proved to be on the seal of Oelde since 1754.

Note:
The description according to Veddeler doesn't match that one of Hauptsazung.

Description of Banner:
The ratio is 5:2. It is a vertical blue-white bicolour, the coat of arms in the centre of a white bannerhead. The ratio between rectangle and the rest is probably about 2:7 (not in my image).
