place where the famous Dutch poet A. C. W. Staring lived and died.
Flag: adopted 24 februari 1970.
The flag is a nice adaptation of the municipal Coat of Arms; the waves stand
for the water of the 'vorde' (ford) in the Vordense beek. The checky part
is derived from Coat of Arms of the family Vorden.
