Helden municipality

Number of inhabitants (1 Jan 2003): 19.500; area: 69,23 km². Settlements: Panningen (seat), Beringe, Egchel, Grashoek, Helden, Koningslust.
Helden is between Venlo and Weert west of the Maas river. The landscape of this region looks a lot like that in East Drenthe and East Groningen; the peat exploitation took place at about the same time and now it is a quite prosperous agricultural region with a bit of industry.
Jarig Bakker, 2 December 1999

According to the official site at the Helden municipal site:
The flag was adopted by approval of the municipal council on 8 September 1969. The flag shows a division of 6 equal stripes over the width of the flag, alternatively yellow and blue on the hoist end, and blue and yellow on the fly, in such way that 6 large and 6 small stripes are created. These larger stripes stand for the 6 main villages and the smaller stripes for the 6 communes, that together formed the original municipality of Helden. Because of the alternating colours in the flag a vertical line is created, this line represents the language (or dialect) border that crosses our municipality. North of the line Weert-Venlo a Brabants-Gelders dialect is spoken, and south of this line the real Limburgs dialect is spoken.
The 6 villages are: Beringe, Egchel, Grashoek, Helden, Koningslust and Panningen. The 6 communes are Zelen, Onder, Dreese, Everlo, Hub and Loo. (according to their friendly response on my e-mail)
