On April 1, 1948, the Neuenbrook office with its seat in Neuenbrook was formed from the communities of Neuenbrook, Dägeling, Grevenkop and Rethwisch. Through the merger with the office of Kremperheide on August 1, 1956, the communities of Bahrenfleth, Kremperheide and Krempermoor were added. On July 1, 1969, the city of Krempe joined the office. As part of this, the office was renamed to Amt Krempermarsch and the administrative headquarters were moved to Krempe. In 1970 the municipalities of Elskop and Süderau joined the office.
coat of arms
The settlement of the Krempermarsch in the early Middle Ages was interrupted by the natural rise in sea level in the area of the North Sea coast . The repopulation began in the 13th century by the Dutch, Frisians and Saxons. In connection with this, a special local government developed in the form of the Krempermarschkommüne , which included the area of the seven villages Borsfleth , Elskop , Grevenkop , Kiebitzzeile , Krempdorf , Neuenbrook and Süderau . This self-governing body existed until 1892. The Krempermarsch flag , which still hangs today in the meeting room of the administration, shows in a red field a white swan in a fighting position with a golden crown around its neck. A coat of arms with this content has represented the Stormarn landscape for 500 years . It is not clear how this correspondence of the symbols comes about. In order to do justice to the old tradition in the Krempermarsch, all seven villages have jointly adopted the old swan coat of arms, whereby the color changes for each village to distinguish them.
