Orthen village

Orthen is a ward of the Noord-Brabant capital, 's-Hertogenbosch or Den Bosch (Bois-le-Duc in French).
Flag: yellow charged with three red mill-irons placed 2,1.
adopted 24 Apr 2005; design: Heemkundekring de Orthense Schaar.

On the "Great Orthenfiesta", 24 Apr 2005 the Orthen Society revealed the "Gemeintvlag" after a mess in the San Salvator church. The flag has a yellow field with three red mill-irons. The flag has been designed after an idea of the Heemkundekring de Orthense Schaar. Research revealed that a coat of arms like that had been used by "a lord of Brabant".
The "villa Orthen" is already mentioned in 815, that is before the foundation of "s-Hertogenbosch. "Villa" means here: estate. The duke of Brabant used it as a hunting-domain, which was referred to as "het bos van de hertog" (the woods of the duke), hence: "des hertogen bosch" --> "-Hertogenbosch.

I had a closer look at this website and concluded that the three mill-irons had been miraculously transformed into 6 red half-circles and 3 icehockey-pucks.
