Aduard former municipality
Aduard is a former municipality in Groningen province, now part of Zuidhorn
municipality. Locally known as Auwerd (which is also the Frisian name).
It had 2.500 inhabitants in the settlements Aduard (seat), Den Ham, Den
Horn, Hoogemeeden, Lagemeeden, Fransum, De Poffert, Aduardervoorwerk, Altenauw,
Fransummervoorwerk, Gaaikemadijk, Nieuwklap, Wierum, and Wierumerschouw
In Aduard was the largest and richest monastery in Groningen, a Cisteriensian
abbey, which was a center of learning since the 15th century. It was demolished
in 1580. Notable pupils of the abbey were Wessel Gansfort and Rudolf Agricola.
Flag: white with a cross consisting of two rows of alternating blue
and yellow squares, of which the vertical arm is at 1/3 flaglength, with
a width of 1/5 flagheight; in the corners of the cross, diagonally placed
with the bottom in the corner, four french fleurs-de-lis of 1/8 flagheight.
The color of the municipal shield is white, which was used for the
flag as well. The chequy bar from the arms consist of three rows; on the
flag of two, and the crozier from the arms has not been used - the cross
equally symbolizes a religious motif. A cross was used because several
other Groninger municipalities had already used one - the provincial flag
and Bedum are examples. The fleur-de-lis is from the Coat of Arms, and originates
from Clairvaux and France, where the original monastery was founded.
Adopted 30 Nov 1972 after design by the Stichting Banistiek en Heraldiek.
