The flag of Ysbrechtum was designed in 1976 by the Fryske Rie foar de Heraldyk,
at the request of village interest societey Doarpsrounte: Red with a blue
hoist triangle with a bordering yellow gaff with arms 1/4th as wide as
the flag height, and on the blue a yellow fleur-de-lys.
The flag can be seen as the village map, with the three roads leading
to Nijland, Scharnegoutum and Sneek, and the quarters between those roads
geographically red for built-up areas, except for the noble blue to represent
Epemastate between the roads to Nijland and Sneek. But in the Ysbrechtum
arms the gaff also forms a 'Y' for 'Ysbrechtum', with its gold colour refering
to the Burmania family. The yellow fleur-the-lys on a blue background refers
to Wymbritseradiel, the municipality Ysbrechtum
was part of at the time the flag was designed.
Design: J.C. Terluin.
