Rien, village in Littenseradiel municipality, Fryslân province. It
used to be in the former municipality of Hennaarderadeel,
first as a hamlet under Itens-Lutkewierum, since 1954 as a separate village.
It was noted for its horse-market. Population (1958): 175; (1974): 134.
It was also known for its "IJsherberg", Ice-tavern - in olden days
stores in cities needed ice to keep their perishable foods fresh; this
had to be transported from the Frisian Lakes, for a city like Franeker
or Leeuwarden a rather long haul, so at regular intervals the ice-transporters
had a short rest at such an "ijsherberg". Geert Mak has written a book
about the Amsterdam cultural center known as "De IJsbreker", which had
a similar function for the long haul from Weesp to Amsterdam city.
Rien coat of arms: in green a golden chevron, on top with an erased swan-neck
and an erased horse-head, facing each other, both silver, in base with
a golden corn-sheaf.
Flag: five equally wide horizontal stripes of green and white; a yellow
hoist-triangle with the point at 11/15 flag length and towards the hoist
lengthened with 1/3 flag length; the yellow charged with a green hoist-triangle
with the point at 6/15 flag length, this triangle charged with a yellow
corn sheaf of 1/2 flag height.
The village is on the green dike on the so-called island of Easterein.
Near that village is the lock known as the "Rienstersyl", represented
by the green chevron in the coat of arms. The swan-neck points at the "zwanejacht",
connected to the lock (see: Mantgum). The horse-head
symbolizes the horse-market, which was held here annually. The corn-sheaf
is from the arms of the Rheen-family, which gave its name to the village.
In the flag the corn-sheaf and the lock are central. The silver elements
on the arms are here represented by two white stripes.
