adopted 29 July 1954
webpage is an explanation about Doetinchem's flag:
Nothing is known about the flag(s) used in ancient times in Doetinchem. Only in 1938 the flag of Doetinchem is being discussed, in connection with the 40-years jubilee of Queen Wilhelmina. This flag was about the same as the one of the province of Gelderland: two horizontal stripes yellow and blue. In the canton was the municipal CoA. Yellow and blue were probably chosen because azure-blue and gold are the main color of the municipal CoA.
The municipality was advised to use vertical stripes, because some other
municipalities, as well as the polderboard did already use horizontally
In 1954 the municipal council instituted the three-striped version of white - blue - yellow, in equally wide vertical stripes.
