Amsterdam is divided in 14 "stadsdelen" (city-parts), most of which have logo-flags. Just googling under "vlag" produces results like the new flag of the "Stadsdeel Geuzenveld-Slotermeer", at this website. The "real thing" has the obvious advantage of being hardly noticed.
(If someone wants to make a nice gif I'll volunteer to give a description and symboliolology).

The main color is (dark) yellow, not orange, as I expected. The hoist is white with in top three red saltires per pale (Amsterdam), over a dark-yellow sun. The dark-yellow fly is separated by a narrow red stripe from the hoist, charged with "Amsterdam Geuzenveld-Slotermeer". The yellow fly contains two white vertical stripes.

Geuzenveld-Slotermeer is one of the most westerly suburbs of Amsterdam, bordering on Halfweg (where the former sugarbeetfactory was) and now features the Sint Lucas - Sint Andreas Ziekenhuis (Hospital), a very hightech institution, where I was a guest for the past month. The "Slotermeer" is not to be confused with the like-named lake in Southwest Fryslân, mainly noticeable by the lack of German flags und Kapitäne.
