Municipal flag

Duiven is just outside Arnhem, southeast of it. The names could be translated 'Doves' (with an e :-) - Etymologically the name is related to 'dune' (Dutch: duin). An old folkloristic custom here was 'vendelzwaaien' - bannerthrowing. I don't know whether that has survived.

The flag was adopted 25 June 1954. The colors were derived from the municipal CoA.
