Sierksma's Nederlands Vlaggenboek, 1962 [sie62]
Flagdescription: Diagonnaly divided blue - yellow.
This flag is not official, but is used by the citizens. The municipal
council uses a flag with two equally wide horizontal stripes yellow and
blue. These colors are derived from the municipal Coat of Arms.
Hoevelaken is a notorious road junction just outside Amersfoort, on
the border between Utrecht and Gelderland.
I wonder whether the flag reflects the traffic situation? Flag adopted
by municipal resolution on 17 May 1968.
