Schouwen-Duiveland polderboard

[Schouwen-Duiveland polderboard] image by Jarig Bakker, 18 May 2004
adopted 10 Jul 1987; design: High Council of Nobility

Official name: Waterschap Schouwen-Duiveland; seat: Brouwershaven
adopted 10 Jul 1987; design: High Council of Nobility
Flagdescription: Seven wavy stripes of blue and white. Along the full hoist four black triangles of 1/3 flaglength.
The colors and pieces are derived from the polderboard arms (which doesn't seem to have been published), which is described as: "Swallowtaile-formed divided: I. Wavy divided: a. Gold charged with a merman and mermaid issuing from the waves of natural colors, withj tails of green, the merman andf mermaid reaching each other's hand.; b. Wavy per fess of 6 pieces blue-silver; II. indented parti of five pieces, heraldic right silver; heraldic left black; the shield surmounted by a golden crown of three leaves and two pearls.
The arms were granted 18 Dec 1959. The top consists of the arms of the polderboard "Schouwen", which was abolished on 1 Jan 1959. There was no separate polderboard of Duiveland; for that part the old indented arms of the municipality Duiveland was used in the black-white version.
In the flag the number of blue-white stripes changed from 6 to 7, referring to the Zeeuwse flag. The 4 complete points in the arms have correctly been transformed into hoist-triangles.

This waterschap covers the Western part of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen, the region south of Westerschelde at the Belgian frontier. The flag does not meet the normal rules, showing the whole name of the college. The very simple arms with their remarkable crest have a long history, which goes back to the House of Noelles, hereditary bailiffs of the Freedom of Brugge, of which the waterschap was once a part.

Waterschap Zeeuws-Vlaanderen

[Zeeuws-Vlaanderen polderboard] image sent by Jan Mertens, 14 Jan 2009

I am afraid that a relatively new board was not
inspired when it adopted a flag – see here: “Waterschap Zeeuws-Vlaanderen” unites “De Drie Ambachten”, “Het Vrije van Sluis”, and “Hulster Ambacht” since 1999.  The logo, shown on above page, is placed on a white field.

Said logo consists of three dark blue horizontal stripes placed in a diagonally (left to right) descending position (apparently invoking the three former boards’ location), surrounded by an interrupted green oval line.  To the left of it is placed the name: “Waterschap” (dark blue, large) / “Zeeuws-Vlaanderen” (green, smaller).
