Abstract: We prove that a Willmore surface which has its boundary on a strict star-shaped two-dimensional domain and which intersects the plane of the domain with a zero angle, along the boundary, is necessarily a piece of the plane.
Keywords: Willmore surfaces, Dirichlet boundary conditions, Pohozaev identity, conformal Gauss map
