Jesendorf : The ancient fire place in Jesendorf is the largest in Germany. It was discovered in 2008 east of the Tarzower See during a rescue excavation. Jesendorf was first mentioned in a document in 1235. The church in Jesendorf dates from 1338. The Jesendorf settlers' houses have existed since the 1930s, they were built in the course of settlement after the Jesendorf estate was dissolved. Trams, Neperstorf and Büschow were originally estate villages (until 1945).

Neperstorf was first mentioned in a document around 1320. The manor house was probably built between 1700 and 1750. The property was u. a. owned by the von Plessen (until 1818), Keding, Busch and Tersteegen (1906–1945) families .

Trams: Landowners were u. a. the families von Stralendorff (14th century – 1754) and von Barner (1754–1945). The mansion burned down in 2001.


coat of arms

Blazon : “Divided; above in gold a four-flame red fire, below in blue an eight-spoke golden wheel. "

The coat of arms and the flag were designed by the Schwerin heraldist Heinz Kippnick . It was approved together with the flag on October 6, 2011 by the Ministry of the Interior and registered under the number 339 of the coat of arms of the state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

Foundation of the coat of arms: The main occupation of the inhabitants was agriculture. The community has good prospects thanks to the A 14, formerly A 241, which connects the A 20 with the A 24 (Berlin-Hamburg). During excavations on the route, among other things, many early fireplace sites have been uncovered. It follows that this area was settled 2000 years ago. The four-flame fire indicates the four districts and the largest currently known site of this type in Mecklenburg. The wheel embodies agriculture, motorway and gravel mining. The colors in the national emblem emphasize the affiliation to the Mecklenburg region. With the tinging, the main colors of the coat of arms are also shown in the flag.


The flag is evenly striped lengthways with blue and yellow. In the middle of the flag, at two thirds of the height of the blue and yellow stripes, is the municipal coat of arms. The relation of the height of the flag cloth to the length is like 3: 5.
