Description of flag:
It is white over green horizontal bicolour.

White and green are the main colours of the coat of arms. Mrs. Hillert from the local administration wrote to me per email that currently no flag exists. This information is confirmed by the local statutes (Hauptsatzung). Stadler however confirms the existence of the bicolour.

Ahlden upon Aller Coat of Arms

Description of coat of arms:
Shield parted per bend sinister of Argent and Vert, two lions passant Or in pale, in chief a coronet Or.
Meaning:
The arms had been used on seals long before and are those, which were depicted on a silken banner from the 18th century, which probably had its origin from Princess Sophie Dorothea of Hannover, which lived in Ahlden from 1694 until 1724 as an exile with limited governmental power in the districts of Ahlden, Walsrode and Rethem. The coronet is alluding to the princess as member of the family of rulers. The lions are a modification of the leopards of Braunschweig.

Meaning:
The wing is taken from the family arms of the Hodenberg kin, aka Hodenhagen kin, name giver of the municipality. Hodenhagen was established in 1936, when the villages of Riedhagen and Hudemühlen merged. The mill is probably representing Hudemühlen.
