adopted Jun 1962

Flagdescription: quartered of yellow, white, red and black.
This flag was adopted Jun 1962 by municipal resolution. The colors are derived from the municipal arms. The reason for quartering is at the one hand the form of the cross in the arms, on the other had the invention of curing of herrings by Willem Beukelszoon of Briervliet in the 14th century: a cross-cut is essential for this practice.
