Woudrichem Coat of Arms

[Woudrichem Coat of Arms] from the Woudrichem municipal website.
Granted 23 Mar 1974

The present coat of arms was awarded to Woudrichem by Royal Decree on 23 March 1974. It is a composition of the coats of arms of the surrounding villages, which in 1993 were combined into one borough. The coat of arms is a shield of gold with two opposite-facing salmons in gules [heraldic colour of red]; a chief of sable [heraldic colour of dark grey/blue] with five broad-armed crosslets in gold; and for the crest, a golden crown of three leaves and two pearls. The salmons on the shield are a reference to the salmon-fishing that was an integral part of Woudrichem for many centuries. Nowadays unfortunately, there are no salmons left in Dutch rivers.


Giessen former municipality

[Giessen flag] by Jarig Bakker, 11 Nov 2003

Giessen had a flag: white with a red. at least four times wavy hoist diagonal stripe of 1/3 flagheight.
Adopted 16 Jul 1970 by municipal resolution.
Woudrichem and the other former municipalities are at the point where the Waal flows into the Boven-Merwede, as well as the "Afgedamde Maas" (Dammed Maas (2 M's!), and where also three provincial boundaries meet (Zuid-Holland, Gelderland, and Noord-Brabant) - 3 rivers is a rather good excuse to use a wavy diagonal on a flag...

Rijswijk former municipality

[Rijswijk flag] by Jarig Bakker, 11 Nov 2003

Rijswijk had a flag: a yellow fly and a white hoist, divided by a green hoist-diagonal at least four times wavy stripe of 1/3 flagheight.
Adopted 8 May 1970 by municipal resolution.
As stated above: a good excuse for even two wavy flags...
This Rijswijk is not to be confused with Rijswijk near Den Haag (Zuid-Holland). Good thing that Woudrichem kept its old name, as it is also colloquially known as Wo(e)rkum and then could easily be confused with Warkum in Fryslân...
