Minden-Lübbecke county (Northrhine-Westphalia)

Description of flag:
The flag's ratio is 3:5. It is a red over white horizontal bicolour with the count's coat of arms shifted to the hoist.
Description of coat of arms:
The shield is divided per pale. The dexter side shows two crossed silver (=white) keys in a red field. The sinister side shows three red chevrons in a silver (=white) field.
Meaning:
The keys are taken from the coat of arms of the bishopric of Minden.
The three chevrons are the ensign of the counts of Ravensberg. Minden and Ravensberg became parts of the electorate of Brandenburg in 1614, finally in 1648 after the end of 30-years war.
Authorized: 11 September 1973 by Regierungspräsident Detmold
