Triemen village (De Trieme)

De Triemen (/Triemen) with on the page: http://www.triemen.nl/
Flag: "Stripes blue - yellow - green; the upper two crenel-wise united" And: The Coat of Arms: "Or, charged with a green tree on a grass field  of the same, with a blue crenellated chief, charged with two silver lilies".
Triemen lies on the sand. This type of soil has always been rich in oaks, which is why such a tree has gotten a place on these arms. Near this village there used to stand a keep: The Buma-stins (Buma Keep). The crenellated edge of the chief gives a hint of this. The blue colour and the silver lilies come from the Buma arms.
I take it that these are lengthwise stripes. The blue and its edge are apparently from the Buma's, the green appears to stand for the oaks. That leaves the yellow, that will have to be sand again, I guess.
