webpage are flag and Coat of Arms of Sijbrandahuis village, in the municipality
of Dantumadiel, Fryslân.
Alex Bouma, the webmaster of the site, writes:
"The village is in north-Dantumadeel. The name consists of a Christian
name Sijbrand / Siebrand and house. Sijbrand is a composition of the German
"sig", meaning victory, "brand, meaning (flaming) sword. The name
therefore means "(flaming) sword of victory. The Nederlands Hervormde Church
of Sijbrandahuis was built in the 13th century in red brick. It is remarkable

slowly increasing group of Frisian municipalities who have changed the
names of their towns and villages to the language they should be using:
Frisian). It consists of little more than a few farms and one or two private
homes. Its total population is 57. Its little church is described, on the
sign leading to it, as a 13th Century Monastery Chapel, probably once part
of the Claerkampster Monastery. It is about 7 kilometres from my home in
