Gransee und Gemeinden Subcounty

The subcounty of Gransee and municipalities, that's the translation of its unusual name, has no proper flag, also its muncipalities as follows: Großwoltersdorf, Schönermark, Sonnenberg and Stechlin.

Banner

It is a red-white vertical bicolour with centred arms. Probably only the banner exists, as in Hauptsatzung explicitly is mentioned, that the sheet is hung from a horizontal crossbar.

Though mentioned in Hauptsatzung, flag, banner and arms never had been approved officially, as the Main State Archive of Brandenburg refused the approval and insisted on an amendation of the arms, which however never occurred.
