Municipal flag

Born is northwest of Sittard on the Maas river. It was built around the castle of the count de Noidans (built 1647-1666), where according to tradition one can find the throne of king Zwentibold or Sanderbout. Zwentibold was the illegal son of Arnulf (c. 850-900), king of Germany, who spent some time in Born before he was elected king of Lorraine (895-900). He died in the battle of Susteren (13-8-900).

The colors of the flag are the Gelderland colors upside-down; Born used to be partly of Gulik, partly of Gelre.
