Rendsburg is a city, the seat of Rendsburg-Eckernförde county. The Hauptsatzung of Rendsburg, available online here, says:

Wappen, Flagge und Siegel
(2) Die Stadtfarben sind rot-weiß-rot.
(3) Die Stadtflagge zeigt in Weiß die rote Burg des Stadtwappens, etwas zur Stange hin verschoben, oben und unten begleitet von je einem schmalen roten Randstreifen.
which translates to:
(2) The colours of the city are red-white-red.
(3) The flag of the city shows the red castle of the arms in white, slightly shifted towards the hoist, accompanied above and below by a thin red stripe along the edge.
The above image is my interpretation of this specification.

The flag of Rendsburg is the most southern example of this kind of flag: arms on a white flag.

The Hauptsatzung of Rendsburg (...) describes a completely different design though. (...) Did you see any flags matching this description?
