[Ryptsjerk flage] by Jarig Bakker, 5 May 2004
adopted 22 Nov 1984; design: P. Bultsma

See also:

Ryptsjerk village (Rijperkerk)

Flag: a red hoist and a blue fly; the division-line is edged; in top hoist a white swimming duck.
In the past a lot of peat-digging was going here. There were also some duck-cages. At present cattle-breeding is the main source of income for the Ryptsjerksters. The ducks in chief of the coat of arms and the canton of the flag remind of the duck-cages. The irons of the scythe in base of the Coat of Arms represent the agricultural sector. The edged divisions represent the grass and the sharp scythes.
