Zeeland, The Netherlands

I think that this is one of my favourite flags i had ever seen....coz of its combination of colours, and the tone of the blue colour...feels just perfect....

This is the flag of Zeeland, a province in the south-west of the Netherlands. It consists of a number of islands, so thats why its called Zeeland (Sea-Land).

The flag of Zeeland was adopted on 14 January 1949. In the centre of the flag the coat-of-arms of Zeeland is depicted. The wavy blue lines represent the waves, and the constant struggle against the sea.

I like the story behind what the flag represents....i like things with a story and menaing behind them in general.
