Historical flag

Purmerend old Shipmate Flagchart :

Flagdescription: Three equally wide horizontal stripes red - yellow - black.
This was an unofficial flag, already documented in Hesman's flagbook (1708), who has also the same flag with the Coat of Arms towards the hoist on the yellow stripe, with bits on the other stripes as well.
