Bakkefean village (Bakkeveen)

This village is in the municipality Opsterland in southeast Friesland, c. 10 km east of the metropole Drachten. Its flag and CoA, adopted in 1998, are at the village website. It is in the 'Friese Wouden', hence the green color on the flag and the oakleaf. Yellow is for the sandy soil. I guess the red and black colors are related to the peatdigging in the past.
