Shipmate Flagchart : http://www.flagchart.net
Description: red, with in the center of white a pointed sword, pointed
downwards with on both sides a white six-pointed star.
This flag was not official. It was documented in the Neapolitan flagbook of 1667 and was a simplified image of the municipal arms. In the 17th century Haarlem was not a port anymore, so the flag must be must older.
The flag was not used anymore, while a two-striped flag of red and white was occasionally seen.

"Vicit vim virtus" means: virtue forces power to yield. An old rhyme
gives the following explanation:
1219: the Pope gave the Cross, the Emperor his Sword. The four Stars were given by the Patriarchs and the Cardinals the Red field, for the Haarlemmers conquered Damiate, 1610.
The small bells are called "Damiaatjes", just like the small bells in the carillon, which are played in the evening.

The burgee of Haarlemsche Jachtclub (Haarlem Yacht Club) is red divided
