|Flag of Overijssel|
|Adopted||July 21, 1948|
The flag of Overijssel, a province of the Netherlands, is divided into five horizontal stripes of equal width, coloured red, yellow, blue, yellow, and red. The centre stripe is a wavy stripe with three waves.
- The blue stripe represents the IJssel River (also is an element of the provincial coat of arms).
- Red and yellow are the colours of the coat-of-arms of Holland and represent the historical link between Overijssel and the province of Holland.
The current flag is the first officially adopted flag of Overijssel. But in 1938 an unofficial horizontal tricolour of red, yellow, and blue was used to represent the province.
