This village is in the municipality Opsterland in southeast Friesland,
c. 10 km east of the metropole Drachten. Its flag and Coat of Arms, adopted in 1998,
are at the village
website. It is in the 'Friese Wouden', hence the green color
on the flag and the oakleaf. Yellow is for the sandy soil. I guess the
red and black colors are related to the peatdigging in the past.

On this page
you can read that the village flag and arms of Bakkeveen were designed
by Marijke Zwaga and Jelle Terluin.
