[Niedorp new flag] by Jarig Bakker, 1 Aug 2004
adopted 17 Dec 1992; design: A. Wit

Niedorp municipality

Number of inhabitants (1 Jan 2003): 11.444; area: 65,54 km². Settlements: Nieuwe-Niedorp (seat), Barsingerhorn, Haringhuizen, Kolhorn, Lutjewinkel, Oude-Niedorp, 't Veld, Winkel, Zijdewind.
On 1 Jan 1990 the present municipality of Niedorp was formed by the merger of the former municipalities of Niedorp and (part of) Barsingerhorn (Wieringerwaard became part of Anna Paulowna municipality).
A new flag was adopted 17 Dec 1992, described as:
"On a yellow hoist of 1/3 flaglength a red decapitated lion rampant nailed blue with from the neck three high spouting bloodvessels; the lion of 4/5 flagsheight; the fly black, charged with a horizontal stripe of 1/3 flagheight, chequy of three horizontal rows of blue and white lozenges; the bottom charged with a white sword with a yellow hilt, the hilt placed towards the hoist".
Design: A. Wit of the Stichting Historisch Niedorp; it is derived from the municipal arms. The decapitated lion reminds of the village of Winkel, where on the Winkelmadeveld the Count of Holland, Arnulf, was killed in 993 by Frisians.
The sword is from a medieval seal of the "town of Niedorp", and has been placed on the flag in order not to neglect Oude- and Nieuwe Niedorp. The chequy stripe reminds of the former municipality of Barsingerhorn. That is from arms of the Counts of Holland from the Bavarian house, descendents of Willem, Bastaard of Albrecht van Beieren and Johanna (Aleid) van Hodenpijl, who were till 1658 lords of Schagen.

Niedorp Coat of Arms

[Niedorp Coat of Arms] from the Niedorp municipal site.

Granted 30 Oct 1990. The heart-shield with a decapitated Hollandish Lion is a reminder of the battle against the West-Frisians on the Winkelmadevlakte near the village of Winkel in 993. Arnulf, count of Holland, was killed in that battle.
