Description of flag:
It is a square with three red tails. The square is an image of the coat of arms.
Description of coat of arms:
There are three leaves of a water-lily, shaped like hearts. Two of them are above, one is below a line shaped like a hill with three peaks. The upper leaves are red in a silver(=white) field. Chief and base are countercharged.
Colours and leaves are symbolizing the former rule of the counts of Tecklenburg. The mountain is symbolizing the cities name, which had been derived from "Berglehne".
