Twente regional flag

Twente is the eastern part of the province of Overijssel. Its unofficial flag is red with a white horse in the center.

I was looking for the flag of Twente (Netherlands, region) and simular ones. Looking for a white horse (the "Twentse Ros" as well as the "Sachsenross"). Twente is a Lower-Saxon region of the Netherlands like Niedersachsen (a "Land") and Westphalia in Germany. The white horses in the flags and Coats of Arms of these regions are related.
You can find some exemples of the "Twentse Ros" on this website; one of them used in the logo of FC Twente a Dutch Eredivisie soccer team.
