Baexem former municipality

Baexem is a former municipality in Limburg province, northwest of Roermond city on the opposite bank of the Maas. Since 1991 it is included in the new municipality of Heythuysen.
Flag: five wavy stripes proportioned 2:1:2:1:2 of green and white. Adopted 28 Aug 1986 by municipal resolution.

This is an adaptation of the arms, where wavy fesses argent on a field vert dominate. One wave may account for the brook Goorbeek, perhaps the other represents the Mexican wave when the RKFC Baexem United doesn't score a goal (it's a very wavy sporting event  :-)  - especially because the other teams have saints with more luck that St. John the Baptist.
