Shipmate Flagchart : http://www.shipmate.nl/flags.htm
adopted 25 Oct 1990
Description of the flag: Three stripes YRW, over which a blue hoist
triangle. Height and length relationship: 2:3. This flag was designed by
the artist Tonny Ross, who lived and worked in Lobith. The flag is mainly
based on the flag of the former commune Herwen en Aerdt. The abolished
commune Pannerden had no flag. The blue triangle symbolises the location
of the commune Rijnwaarden at the Bovenrijn.
* Tiles refer to the many tile works in the region; the barrier is of course for the frontier which used to be there between the Netherlands and Germany.
