Boer village

Boer is a village in Franekeradeel municipality in (NW) Fryslân province. It has less than 100 inhabitants, mainly living of agriculture and cattle-breeding. It had a 12th century church.
Nickname: "Aeidoppen" (eggshells) - there is an old Frisian saying: "Dy't aeien hat, kin doppen meitsje" - Who's got eggs can make shells. Who has got money can do posh things. In olden days "kippenhouders" (chickenbreeders, fat farmers) lived in Boer, as seems only logical because "Boer" means: farmer.
No description available nor semiology. I suppose the wavy bar refers to the mighty river Ried. The rose is from the old Franekeradeel flag.
