Earnewâld village (Eernewoude)

Flagdescription: Trije hichtebanen fan grien, wyt, grien, yn 'e ferhâlding 1:6:1, yn 'e wite baan op it krús in swarte dûbele earn.
That is: Three horizontal stripes in green, white, green, proportions 1:6:1; in the white stripe on the cross a black double eagle.
This village has since centuries its own coat of arms. It is nearly a canting arms. The name "Earnewâld" is probably derived from eagle (earn) and wood (wâld). The vilage arms show a double eagle. In the past the eagle could be found here as a breeding bird. Because the German imperial eagle was completely black, like the Frisian eagle, which was derived from that, this eagle is black too, but on a silver field, instead of yellow, as it is oin the arms of the German emperor.
The flag shows the double eagle between two horizontal green stripes. These have been added to represent the rural character of this village with its stately arms. Green refers also to the wood in the village name.
Earnewâld (Dutch: Eernewoude) is a village with c. 400 inhabitants. It is a very popular watersport-resort.
