Dinxperlo is in southeast Gelderland and its main village has a twin
in Germany (Suderwick); it used to be a delight for enclavophiles. The
flag is obviously derived from the CoA, which refers to the possible origin
of the name (Dinxperlo > Dingserlo): a 'ding' was the place where
justice was administered, lo: wood, forest.
