Ureterp (Frisian: Oereterp) is a village in Opsterland municipality, Fryslân
province, on the road Drachten-Groningen, with (1958) 2690 inhabitants;
(1974) 3174. It's a "red" village, so my uncle forbade me to go there,
and in my youth I was very obedient.
Nickname: "Beaniters" (pea-eaters), "Oanbreide hoazzen"
(re)embroidered socks. - The villagers liked "bruine bonen met spek"
(brown beans with bacon and rich bacon fat) and they were so poor that when
socks showed holes they couldn't buy new ones, and mom had to stitch new
ends to the socks.
Ureterp coat of arms: in black a golden chevron, charged with a green clover,
in chief with two golden mill-irons; in base a silver ram's head.
Flag: Yellow with a green fliy-chevron, of which the point is at 1/4
of flag length, charged with a green clover, and in the hoist two black
mill-irons, one in the canton, on at hoist-bottom.
The chevron is for the sand ridge the village is positioned on (like
several other Opsterland villages). The black field represents the old
peat-grounds. The green clover is for cattle (mainly sheep) and meadows,
and the ram's head is for the the flocks of sheep grazing in the heather
before civilization broke out. The sheep produced fertilizer for the farmers,
to enrich the poor sandy soils. The rye produced was grinded in two mills,
represented by the mill-irons. Mill-irons were used to lock the mill-stones.
