De Marne is a new municipality in northwest Groningen, consisting of the old municipalities of Ulrum, Leens, Kloosterburen and Eenrum (since 1 Jan 1990; the municipality was first named Ulrum; on 1 Jan 1992 it was renamed De Marne). It is an agricultural area with the old harbor of Zoutkamp on the spot where the canalized river 'Reitdiep' streamed into the Lauwerszee; and of course with the creche for seals in Pieterburen.
Info from <http://www.bng.nl/ngw/m/demarne.htm>:
This area was formerly an island in the Hunze river. Named 'De Marne' it was a division of the region Hunsingo. De Marne enjoyed legal freedom as the German emperor wasn't able to exert his power there. It had a seal since 1375 showing St. Peter with a key with a head in the form of a cross. The seat of justice was in the church, devoted to St. Peter in Leens.
This region is a kind of mirror of the Friesland municipality of Dongeradeel and it can't be an accident that both have blue fields
halved by white (wavy) bars. Of the former municipalities Sierksma (Nederlands Vlaggenboek, 1962) [sie62} has drawn only the flag of Eenrum.
