Berkelland is named after the small river Berkel, which has been "restored" by common efforts in the Netherlands and Germany. This inspired the studio Stijlgenoten in Den Ham to design a logo representing the wheel of a watermill. Part of this logo was used on the municipal flag.

It looks a bit unusual, but possesses the qualities of a good flag: simple, used symbolism (stylized waterwheel), two colors, no text or coat of arms, and unique.

A great flag! Artistic and original...
