Wapse village

Wapse village, Westerveld municipality, Drenthe province.
Flag adopted 15 Aug 2000; design: Drents Heraldisch College.
Flagdescription: Seven horizontal stripes proportioned 5:7:25:25:25:7:5, white - red - white - green - white - red - white, with at 1/3
flaglength a black four-pointed star of 13/14 flagheight with at the center a white disk bordered red of 1/2 flagheight, charged with red chalice beaker, decorated black.
The red ring refers to Wapse as an "es"-village (an es is a low mound); the four points of the star refer to 1.000 items, among which the four parts of the village: Soerte, Ten Have, Veenhuizen and Veldhuizen.
The chalice beaker symbolizes the urns, found here in large quantities, the oldest tangible evidence of human presence. A cup like that could be seen on the municipal flag and arms of Diever, before it was merged into the present municipality of Westerveld.

And please don't call the Wapsers "Roggenbrijstraampels" as they may get furious. A "roggenbrijstraampel" is a stick, mostly holly, used by peasants to stir rye-porridge (poor people's food).
