Driesum village (Driezum)
Driesum/Driezum is a small village in the municipality Dantumadiel in Friesland.
Its flag and Coat of Arms are at this
The green on the flag is for the 'Friese Wouden' (Frisian forests),

Orange stands for carrots, which were traditionally grown and sold

the van Sytzama family. The carrot-cross points at the four roads by which
Driesum can be reached.

meadows and alder rows. In this green field four carots (in natural - orange-
colour) have been placed as a reference to the growing and peddling of
these. The numberoffour as picked as a symbol for the village's four entry
roads. In the first quarter a rose from the arms of de Van Sytzama family
was placed as a memory to the important function of this family for the
