Description of flag:
It is a green over yellow bicolour with the coat of arms in its centre. The ratio of flag is 3:5.
Description of coat of arms:
In the centre of a golden (=yellow) shield is a red rose, topped by a prancing black horse, facing the right side. Below the rose is a garland consisting of ten green oak leaves.
The rose is symbolizing the name of the municipality. The horse has the same shape like that of Lower Saxony. The leaves are symbolizing the ten municipalities, Rosengarten was built of Tötensen, Ehestorf, Vahrendorf, Sottorf, Leversen, Sieversen, Langenrehm, Emsen, Iddensen and Nenndorf.
