Hoek former municipality

Hoek was a municipality in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen till 1970 when in merged into Terneuzen and Sas van Gent.
Flagproposal: Three equally wide horizontal stripes of orange, white and blue; at the hoist a yellow triangle reaching into flagcenter; charged with a red castle with two opened windows and an openend gate.
The origin of the village of Hoek was a fortification laid out by Prince Maurits of Orange in 1588, as a defense against the fortress of Philippine (laid out by the Spaniards, and named after King Philip II).
This fort is the red castle on the triangle. The village of Hoek was founded in 1601 at the corner formed by the Kouden- and Loven-polders. The center of the village was named "Oud-Vlissingen".
The tri-angle symbolizes the name of "Hoek", meaning: angle, corner.
