Kerkrade is in southeast Limburg against the German border. It is built against Herzogenrath in Nordrhein Westphalen; the border used to be in the middle of a street. Here the first Dutch coalmine was founded in 1113 (Domaniale Mijn) and until the closure of the mines in the 1950s Kerkrade was one of the main mining centers. When Moresnet was ceded to Belgium (officially Moresnet was 'neutral', but we had mining concessions there IIRC) the Willem-Sophie mine in Kerkrade got permission to dig under German soil for coal - so there were two borders with Germany: one underground and one on the ground. Today it is a modern industrial town with an ancient monastery (Rolduc) and a freshly created lake for recreational purposes.
This flag was never officially adopted; it was already in use by the citizens since the 1950's.
Jarig Bakker, 5 December 1999
