Cadzand former municipality

Cadzand is a former municipality in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen; in 1970 it merged into Oostburg, which on its turn merged into Sluis municipality in 2003.
Flagproposal by Ir. A.J. Beenhakker (c.1970): on white a blue diagonal stripe from hoist top to fly bottom; at hoistbottom and flytop a red five-armed starfish.
The diagonal stripe is from the municipal arms; the starfish has been chosen to represent the beach resort of Cadzand.
It is unknown whether the municipal council has taken this proposal into consideration.

Jarig's message about Cadzand rung a bell.  Have a look at this page, showing a miniature. Text:
"Battle of Cadsand: the English fight the Flemish (1337). (BNF, FR 2643)
Jean Froissart, Chronicles fol. 42v Flandres, Bruges 15th Century. (85 x 90 mm)"

Right at the beginning of the Hundred Years' War, English troops sacked Cadsand during a diversionary attack on the French.  Local Flemish troops turned out to fight them, but lost.  Shortly afterwards, however, the county of Flanders became a valuable ally of Edward III in his struggle for the French crown.

Cadzand Coat of Arms

[Cadzand Coat of Arms) by Jarig Bakker, 20 Oct 2004, after image in the Koffie Hag Album

Cadzand Coat of Arms: argent a bend azure with in chief sinister a black K.
The blue bend is most probably a representation of the Zwin river, which flows into the sea just west of Cadzand (marking the boundary between the Netherlands and Belgium). K is for Cadzand, which was also spelled Kadzand, and its relative geographical position regarding the Zwin.
