The blue bars symbolize water. The trident is for the "dijkplicht" - the duty of male citizens to guard the dikes. Oostzaan was in olden days connected by water to the Y and the sea, and had its own sea-dikes. When citizens were unable to do their duty they were clad in a hairy shirt, go barefeet, and they had to dig with a spade or a fork three sods out of the dike.
