The name Flehe probably comes from the Central German (Mitteldeutsch) word flet meaning a stream.
Flehe became a part of Düsseldorf in 1384, and was first mentioned in documentary records in 1402.
Flehe is a small and relatively sparsely populated part of Düsseldorf. The area from the center of Flehe to the Rhine has a more village-like rather than metropolitan character.
A filtration plant in Flehe purifies water from the Rhine for use as domestic drinking water.
