Oentsjerk village (Oenkerk)

Flag: a white chevron with the legs at hoist and the apex at hoist of 1/5 flagheight, the hoist gores red and the fly gore green; in red on top hoist a yellow flower of the wild tulip with three wide and three narrow chalice-leaves.
The point in the arms represents the church and the roofs of the houses. Near the village are the old manorhouses of Stania State (now a Youth Hostel) and Heemstra State. These manorhouses have special plants, especially the wild tulip. That flower has been placed on both the flag and arms of Oentsjerk.
