Hollandscheveld village

Hollandscheveld, in the municipality of Hoogeveen, Drenthe province, is a place which sends shudders through the urbanized Dutch spines, as there started a farmers' revolt against oppressive taxes. The movement resulted in several MPs of the Boer'n partij, captained by Boer Koekoek in the Dutch parliament (Boer = farmer, peasant). The village is a few km southeast of Hoogeveen in Drenthe and it was formerly a peat-digging area.

The flag: On the village church-spire is a wheathervane with a peatcutter. Bert Duinkerken, the designer of the flag, wanted to make a village flag and insisted on the peatcutter, on a yellow field surrounded by blue. Blue is for water, of utmost importance to the region. Yellow is for sand, which remained after the peat was dug out. And the peatcutter is a symbol for the proud church-spire and the hard labor by which this region was formed.
