I have an image of flag of Sylt island, but the quality isn't overly
good. Also I am not sure about my source.

I doubt that this is a flag of Sylt. I have been there several times,
and there were a lot of flags. But this one was never there as far as I
remember. The island flag of
Sylt is in the East Frisian colours with a fish and a motto.

The described flag is the flag of Kampen, a village on the island Sylt.
Its coat of arms is a silver six-leafed beach thistle on a blue background.
The flag consists of nine evenly sized wave stripes in blue and white.
The arms are in the canton, overlapping the upper five stripes. The coat
of arms was confirmed by the Schleswig-Holstein state government on 31
January 1979, the flag was confirmed on 16 October 1979. Arms were designed
by Mr. Hans Eickert, the flag was designed by H. F. Kühne, an artist in
Barsbüttel, near Hamburg. Source: van Heijningen
1998 [available online
here]. The article describes flags for 4 communities on Sylt, but no
generic flag for the entire island. I also checked the websites of several
North German flag stores; none of them offers a Sylt flag.
