Hylpen town (Hindelopen) [former municipality]

Hindelopen - Hylpen is one of the 11 Frisian cities, since 1984 part of the municipality of Nijefurd. It is in southwest Friesland, a little port on the IJsselmeer with less than 1.000 inhabitants.
Flag: "Four stripes green and yellow, with in the top hoist, at the height of the first to stripes, a Hindelooper bird of white and red with turned head." Confirmed 7-5-1958.
The shield is: Silver a jumping hind red on a green base.
Under Hindeloopen the bird is described a "strekkend" (stretching, reaching). Frisian name "Hynljippen", local name "Hylpen".
Under Municipality flag the bird is shown to be red and white throughout, with red feet, head, wings, and tail feathers, a white back, and red and white wing tips, underside, and neck.
I have no idea what the bird of Hindeloopen might be. Several Hindeloopers were captains in the East-Indian trade and brought home goods that inspired special decoration styles for both wood and pottery, creating an art and industry still in existence. I could imagine the bird to be one of the motifs used in decorating Hindelooper pottery, but I really have no idea.
The old flag was depicted in Hesman's 'Vlaggenboek' of 1708. Another flag of Hindelopen was in the Napolitan flagbook of 1667: RWB with a deer (now in the municipal Coat of Arms) and a bird (in the local dialect 'tjeunk', much to be found in local handicraft)
The new flag was adopted 7 May 1958, abolished 1984. It is the flag of 1708 with toward the hoist the bird 'tjeunk'.
