[Wamel flag] by Jarig Bakker, 6 Nov 2003
Adopted 8 Feb 1971

Wamel is a village and former municipality in Gelderland province, since 1985 part of the new municipality of West Maas en Waal.
Flag: three horizontal stripes of white and blue, proportioned 3:2:3; the blue stripe two times wavy and covering three black "kolf-sticks", spread evenly over the flag.

Source: Derkwillem Visser's "Gemeentewapens en vlaggen Koninkrijk der Nederlanden", 2001.
It is not known why the "kolf-sticks" are on Wamel's flag and Coat of Arms. The wavy blue stripe is the river Waal.
Kolf is an old Dutch game - for description read this webpage (in Dutch, English and German).
