Description of flag: It is an armorial flag, showing a golden 19th
century sailing ship, fully hoisted up, having two masts topped by two
flags. The ship is topped by the name of the municipality in black capitals.
Source: I spotted this flag hoisted on a rescue cruiser of DGzRS in
Neuharlingersiel harbour on 30 April 2009.
*A "Samtgemeinde" (SG*), also called "collective municipality"
is a combination of several municipalities to an administrative community
in Lower Saxony.

The arms of Neuharlingersiel show a two-masted sailing ship on a blue
background. The image of the schooner reminds of the large sailing ships
which had once their base here and shows the position of Neuharlingersiel
on the Northsea-coast. The colors blue and gold underline that the municipality
is part of the Samtgemeinde Esens.
