The status of this flag is uncertain. It was designed by Ir. A.J. Beenhakker, and published by Anton Jansen in "Vlaggen", #71, 1991 - courtesy of Mr. Hans van Heijningen.
Heinkenszand: flagdescription: Diagonally divided from bottom hoist to top fly of white and green, with on white a red cockerel.
Based on the oldest known village arms, as it appears f.i. in the "Kroniek van Smallegange" (1696): in gold a red cockerel on a green mountain. According to Ir. Beenhakker this Coat of Arms is more authentic than the one granted by the Hoge Raad van Adel  on 31 Jul 1817: a bird in natural colors.
Heinkenszand was a municipality in Zeeland province with 2.200 inhabitants, with the settlements Heinkenszand (seat), 't Oudeland, Ouwelandpolder and Rietschbosschen - and a handbow-shooting club. In 1970 the municipality of Heinkenszand merged with several others to form the new municipality of Borsele, on the former island of Zuid-Beveland.
