Koewacht former municipality

Koewacht (meaning: cow-watch) is a former municipality in Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, since 1970 part of Axel municipality, and since 2003 part of Terneuzen.
It had possibly a flag: hor. green-yellow-green (?) (according to Mr. Hans van Heijningen; Ir Beenhakker mentioned in his article, that Koewacht had an official flag).
Flagproposal: At c. 1/3 of flaglength a vertical green stripe over alying, equally narrow red stripe at half flagheight, all on a yellow field.
The flag for this double-village on the Belgian border is based on the municipal arms.
Through the yellow cornfields runs the (red) border, but this is interrupted by the villagestreet, connecting both villages right through the border. Green is also the color of flax, the main product on both sides of the border
