Reiderland is a new municipality, which includes since 1 Jan 1992 the old municipalities of Beerta, Finsterwolde and Nieuweschans. These eastern regions were bulwarks of the Dutch communist party (CPN), especially Finsterwolde. Nieuweschans is the main northern borderpost with Germany.
The notched vertical line on the flag refers to the 'schans' (fort) of Nieuweschans.

Nieuweschans former municipality

[Nieuweschans flag] by Jarig Bakker, 7 Apr 2005
adopted 19 Dec 1972; design: Stichting Heraldiek en Banistiek

Nieuweschans old municipal flag, adopted 19 Dec 1972 by municipal resolution; design: Stichting Heraldiek en Banistiek.
Description: horizontal stripes red - white - blue - yellow - blue - white - red (1:1:4:1:4:1:1) with at 1/3 flaglength in saltire a yellow halbard and a yellow pike of 7/13 flagheight; the parts on the yellow stripe colored red.
The colors are derived from the municipal arms and the whole image illustrates symbolically the character of the municipality - in red-white-blue one sees "The Netherlands"; the yellow stripe represents the east-west, and west-east traffic across the German border, formerly defended by heavy armaments, at present by crossed barriers with a red warning sign.
Source: Vexilla Nostra, 8 (1973): 52.
Nieuweschans was bought in 1628 from the Count of Oost-Friesland (now in Germany); a fortress was built here, and to symbolize that a cannon has been placed on the arms of Nieuweschans, and a spear and habard in saltire on the flag.
On 1 Jan 1992 Nieuweschans became part of Reiderland.
