Municipal flag of Zedelgem

The municipal flag of Zedelgem is yellow with a red chevron charged with three white scallops.
According to Gemeentewapens in België - Vlaanderen en Brussel, the flag was adopted by the Municipal Council on 9 October 1980, confirmed by Royal Decree on 24 February 1981 and published in the Belgian official gazette on 2 April 1981.
The flagis a banner of the municipal arms.

According to Servais, the municipal arms of Zedelgem were granted by Royal Decree on 28 January 1843, re-establishing the arms used by the oldest known lords of Zedelgem in the XIVth century.
The flag of Zedegem is very similar to the flag of Anhée (yellow with a red chevron) but it is merely a coincidence since the flag of Anhée has no heraldic origin, the chevron symbolizing the "A" of Anhée, and to the flag of Knokke-Heist (horizontally divided yellow-red-yellow with three white scallops in the red stripe), with a probable genealogic common origin of the arms of the two not-so-distant municipalities.
