Iens village (Edens)

Iens (Dutch: Edend) is a village in Littenseradiel municipality, Fryslân province; it used to be in the former municipality of Hennaarderadeel, with (1958) 69 inhabitants; (1974) 46. An old road sign read: "Alleen naar Edens" (only to Edens). There is the "Sinterklazepleats", about which a legend is told.
Iens coat of arms: in gold a green "terp" issuing from base, charged with a yellow clover on a branch; on top with two flowers from the fan of a "swanneblom" (a water lily); in chief a red lion passant.
Flag: diagonally divided in three stripes of green, yellow and red, with in the canton a yellow flower from the fan of a water lily. The yellow stripe with 2/5 flagheight.
On the terp of Iens was a "stins" (castle) of the Burmania family. From the coat of arms of that family the clover on a branch has been taken. The flowers have been used as a village-symbol, and were thus used on the new village-coat of arms. The lion in chief can be seen on the bell in the village church.
The "swanneblom" flower is named "swannepopel", Latin: Butomus umbellatus. Is that a flower which is only present in "Ever" (as the English translation of "Iens" is)?
Design: Fryske Rie foar Heraldyk, after consultation of the local Society for village-interests "Pleatselik Belang".
