Wouterswoude.(Wâlterswâld) village, in Dantumadeel. On its website it says:
Flag: Three equally high lenghtwise stripes green, yellow, and black, near the hoist charged with respectively a turned white crescent, a blue chicory flower, and a golden acorn. These are placed in the vorm of a hoist triangle with the heart of the flower lying on the tip of the (imaginary) hoist triangle. Each of these figures in the proper ratio to the stripes they're placed on.
And: Explanation : The coat of Arms is based on the local structure of layers of earth. Green the clay, geel the sand layer, and black the peat. The silver crescent symbolizes the area the village is lying in, the "Dokkumer Wâlden" (Dokkum Forests). The two chicory flowers remind of the chicory factories and the two village centers. The acorn symbolyzes the wooded surroundings of the village.
The design was created by The Fryske Rie foar Heraldyk (Frisian Council for Heraldry) in cooperation with the local society for village interests (Doarpsbilangen)
