Municipal flag

Elst is nearly synonymous with 'fruit of the Betuwe'. It is between the big cities of Arnhem and Nijmegen and gets once every year attention by the 4-days walk ('Vierdaagse')

The flag is a combination of the Dutch RWB and the Gelderland BYN <which is a pity; on the municipal Coat of Arms is a coffin, representing St. Werenfridus, the patron saint of Elst and Westervoort, floating on the water>

Jarig Bakker, 21 September 1999
