I live in Hennigsdorf, but I have never seen the flag flying. The city uses a logoflag instead of blue-white-green.

Shield Argent; an impending anvil Azure, flanked by two skythe blades Azure, connected by a loop Or; chief wavy Vert, issuant from sinister a heron ('s head) proper (Latin: Ardea cinerea), i.e. grey, with a fish Or in his beak.
Meaning:
The charges in chief are symbolising environment and fishery, anvil and blades are symbolising the local steel industries.
