The flag of Norden shows three golden spur wheels 2,1 in a blue field. Norden is nowadays a town in the county of Aurich.

A banner of the arms. From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
The spurs (Sporenräder) are derived from the arms of the Idzinga family. This family had much influence in the city, but it is not known when the city adopted the spurs.
