Bergedorf is a district of Hamburg. It was
annexed by Lübeck in 1420, and belonged to
Hamburg since 1868, becoming part of this town in 1937. The flag of the
former city of Bergedorf was green over white.

I saw Bergedorf's flag and I by pride cannot survive to not have my
home borough be included: Harburg. It is one of Hamburg's boroughs (Bezirk).
Until 1937 it was an independent town in belonging to the Prussian province
of Hannover. Harburg's flag is somewhat similar to the one of Hamburg.
The lion in the door of the fortress represents Henry the Lion, duke of
Saxony and Bavaria, a main antagonist of Frederick I Barbarossa.
