[Braak municipal flag] 3:5 image by Jörg Majewski, 25 Aug 2006
approved 17 Jun 1997

Description of flag:
The ratio is 3:5. It is an armorial flag. It is a green - white - green vertical triband with ratio approx. 1:2:1. In the white stripe seven red, half-timbered farmhouses are surrounding a red fleur de lis.
Meaning:
The green colour is symbolizing the early woods. The village was created by forest clearance. The houses are symbolizing the seven historical acres (Hufen), which formed the village. The fleur de lis is an attribute of St. Mary. Virgin Mary and Mary Magdalen had been the patron saints of a nuns' monastery in nearby Reinbek, to which the village belonged since 1310. When the monastery had been secularized in 1528 it became a property of the dukes of Holstein. The colours red and white are those of Holstein. Reißmann 1997, p.100
