Lemmer is the seat of the municipality of Lemsterland in southern Fryslân, bordering on Flevoland. It is an old village with a small cosy harbour and a great restaurant, where you can for a very decent price eat tasty fish. It is also the village of the best speed-skater of all times, Rintje Ritsma (at least according to himself).
The coat of arms of Lemmer was azure, with a white cloud, from which an arm emerges with a black sleeve, holding a swallow-tailed flag: black with a white Scandinavian-type cross.

The village flag was: a green swallow-tailed flag with a red cross.
(according to Sierksma's Nederlands Vlaggenboek, 1962 [sie62] <Sierksma has no image; it appears from the coat of arms that it is a centered cross, not taking in account the swallow-tail...>
