Municipal flag

Sierksma's 'Nederlands vlaggenboek' aka [sie62] in the FOTW bibliography, p.80, offers a description and mentions the flag's introduction, by the municipal council, on 21 Nov 1961 (the caption of the accompanying drawing on p. 81 mixes Huizen up with Huissen).

Horizontally divided red over yellow; in the centre of the red stripe is placed the milkmaid appearing in the coat of arms, in yellow.

Page presenting the flag and arms (in Dutch):

This good woman, carrying a yoke with two milk buckets, alludes to the municipality's agricultural past.

Huizen pennantJan Mertens, 23 Aug 2011

The official page linked to yesterday ('Huizen pennant', message of 22 Aug 2011) also has a promotional pennant on offer, see last item:

Interpreted as principally a waterborne flag, this pennant measuring how much? costs you €8.00 whereas the proper flag, rectangular surely, measures 100 cm x 150 cm and costs €25.00.

Sky blue field, in white script large name “Huizen” (large), a long streamer flying from the “H” towards the fly and underneath “HAVEN VAN 'T GOOI” (much smaller, regular font, also white) meaning “Gooi Harbour”. On the pennant's lower edge is placed a dark blue stripe, diminishing towards the fly.

A dedicated website is inaccessible or no longer functioning but here we see the logo:

Huizen is located on the Gooimeer - hence the harbour - to the East of Amsterdam, across the new town of Almere in the North.
