Limmen former municipality

Castricum, Akersloot and Limmen have merged on 1 Jan 2002. New name is Castricum.
Flag adopted 10 May 1973; design: Stichting Banistiek en Heraldiek
Description: over the center quartered of black and white, with in flagcenter a lion rampant countercharged of 4/5 flagheight, with in its frontpawa stemmed red tulip.
The colors are derived from the municipal arms. The lion is a pars-pro-toto vor four such lions in the arms.
Flowerbulbs (and the flowerbulb-museum) in Limmen is considered very specific for this (ex)municipality). The tulip in the lion's paw symbolizes that.
