Hooglanderveen village

The village of Hooglanderveen (1,661 inhabitants in 2005) belongs to the municipality of Amersfoort.
As reported by "RTV Utrecht" (22 June 2009), the youth association "Veenpower" has found that Hooglanderveen had no flag, as opposed to the neighbouring village of Hoogland. The brand new flag of Hooglanderveen, yellow and blue with an orange wave, will be unveiled this Saturday (27 June 2009) during the yearly village's festival. The "Veenpower" website seems to have kept the new flag secret.

...and now the "secrete" is out, see this webpage: "The flag of Hooglanderveen" consists of four blocks of yellow and blue. The colors stand for sun and water, the base of growth. In the top left corner of the flag is a red cross on a white rectangle, referring to the coat of arms of Amersfoort. Horizontally through the center runs an orange wave. The orange wave has several meanings: "Orange stands for the Netherlands and the wave for the Malewetering, which originates in Hooglanderveen. The wave also symbolizes the ups and downs of village life."

Just as her big sister Hoogland, the village of Hooglanderveen (Amersfoort municipality) now uses its own flag: I work near Hooglanderveen and the usage of this new flag is huge!
