Coat-of-arms adopted 1949
The flag has three horizontal stripes white-blue-yellow with the arms shifted slightly to the hoist. The devices on the arms are taken from the arms of the city of Norden notice that these are spur-wheels, not stars. Sources: van Heijnigen 1998, arms from Stadler 1964-1972.

From Ralf Hartemink's International Civic Arms website:
Juist is an island, which is symbolised by the dunes and the waves of the North Sea. The spurs are taken from the arms of Norden to symbolise the ties to this city. The arms were granted in 1949 and were based on older, unofficial arms, which just showed the dunes.
Literature: Stadler 1964-1972 and K. Leiner, Panorama Norden, Norden, 1972.
