Shipmate Flagchart : http://www.shipmate.nl/flags.htm
adopted 18 Nov 1969
This flag was not official, but was used for festive occasions.
Granted 1 Apr 1870.
This is the flag of the ward of Slangenbeek in Hengelo, Overijssel,
from this website.
"Slangenbeek" = snakebrook, the serpentine on the flag evidently represents a snake. The symbology of the ball and the tower are unknown to me. The ward is in the northeastern part of Hengelo-city.

Anything to do with the 1939 NY World's Fair???

Nice to see the Trylon and the Perisphere still gainfully employed after
65 years, even if it is a bit far from their original home... ;-)
