Zeeland
Adopted January 14, 1949 [1]
Designed by T.A.J.W. Schorer [1]

The flag of Zeeland Province, the Netherlands, consists of seven wavy stripes: four blue ones and three white one, superimposed with the province coat of arms.

It is the only provincial flag in the Netherlands charged with a coat of arms.

SymbolismEdit

The blue stripes stand for waves and symbolise the constant struggle with the water.

HistoryEdit

The flag was designed in 1948 and on January 14, 1949 and after a competition it was officially adopted by the States Deputed. The winning design was submitted by a member of the States T.A.J.W. Schorer. Orginally there were six wavy stripes: three blues ones, and three white ones, but later it was decided that having upper and lower stripes dark would provide better contrast against the sky.
