yellow the municipal arms. The flag has been sold to the citizens, and
is waving on several places in Castricum.

Castricum 2001 flag
by Jarig Bakker, 3 Feb 2004
adopted 25 Feb 2004
On this site one can admire the
new flag, and the story: (my translation)
"Late 2001 a design was proposed consisting of three equally wide horizontal
stripes of blue, yellow and green. The High Council of Nobility was asked
for advice. The Council found the design too simple and that it was already
used elsewhere. It proposed to use vertical stripes (derived from the municipal
arms), to symbolize the geographical position of the municipality. On the
yellow stripe a twig from the municipal arms was added, referring to the
pluriformity of plants in the dune-area, as well as the cultivation of
potatoes and flowerbulbs."
Jarig Bakker, 3 Feb 2004
The flag was officially adopted by municipal resolution on 25 Feb 2004.
Description: three equally wide vertival stripes of Blue, Yellow and Green;
in Yellow a green twig.
