Landsmeer municipality

Number of inhabitants (1 Jan 2003): 10.302; area: 26,44 km². Settlements: Landsmeer (seat), Den Ilp, Purmerland.
Landsmeer was formed after the merger of Den Ilp, Landsmeer, and Purmerland on 1 Jan 1994.
Flagdescription: A rectangular red field with in the center a white swan with a yellow beak and black feet.
Adopted by municipal resolution on 9 Feb 1962.

Landsmeer is a municipality north of Amsterdam in Noord-Holland province. It used to be a rural community, part of the 16th century "Waterlandse Unie", which tried to compete commercially with its neighbours Amsterdam and Monnickendam. This is reflected in the Coat of Arms (see Ralf Hartemink's site), which contains a swan with a golden necklace and a bundle of 7 arrows, representing the seven municipalities which were part of this union. This Coat of Arms was used by several other municipalities - Ralf Hartemink mentions Waterland, Broek in Waterland, Buiksloot and Ransdorp. The swan symbolizes also the water, and the
water-fowl, so abundant in this region.

At present Landsmeer is a sleeping town for people who work in Amsterdam, notably the more well-to-do (the others have to sleep in Almere, Purmerend, Hoofddorp, etc).

I have slightly modified the flag-image on the Shipmate-site, to match the description.
