A blue flag with a yellow stripe (about the width of the white
stripe in the Danish flag), located below the center line, and
containing two 5 pointed white stars in upper hoist, the upper
one smaller and to the left of the lower one.

Curaçaos flag portrays the blue sea and sky, bisected by the yellow sun. The two stars represent Curaçao and its uninhabited sister island Klein Curaçao; their five points symbolize the five continents from which the varied local population originates.

From "Vlaggenalbum" of Gouda's Roen (c. 1950) - The
flag for Curaçao is the Dutch RWB with a CoA in the center
(apparently not the CoA of that island); I haven't seen it in any
flagbook, so this seems to be highly doubtful. The ship is of the
West Indische Compagnie, see <www.ngw.nl>.

Both Suriname and the Netherlands Antilles used the CoA of the
"Geoctrooiëerde Westindische Compagnie" (Dutch West
India Company), that is a three-master on a way sea. So this CoA
may have been used on flags. Note that the old CoA at <www.ngw.nl>
has a white scroll with black lettering, and not a red scroll.
