Raerd village

Official name: Raerd (Dutch: Rauwerd) village in Boarnsterhim, formerly seat of the former municipality of Rauwerderhem. In the 15th century Raerd (not to be confused with Raard in Dongeradeel) was on the road Sneek-Oostergo (=Wijns), and it suffered from troops marching to and fro on that road (sieges, occupations, and what not). The grietmannen (mayors) of
Rauwerderhem lived in the Jongema-state in Rauwerd, which has disappeared, but its domain is still a nature-reserve (Raerder bosk).
Raerd: coat of arms: in red a silver fess with three red roses.
The village gave its name to the former municipality of Raerderhim (Rauwerderhem), therefore the red-white shield has been adopted for the village arms. The three roses are from the arms of the Jongema family.
Flag: two vertical stripes of white and red, proportioned 2:1; in the white stripe a red rose.
