Municipal flag

Kesteren is a Over Betuwe municipality in West Gelderland, a fruit growing area. The name is derived from Latin 'castra', army camps - there used to be two castles. According to van der Aa, 'Aardrijkskundig Woordenboek der Nederlanden', there was here an oak or lime tree, where in the days of the Batavi justice was administered.

The flag was adopted 12 June 1959, derived from the municipal CoA. <IMO a quite unimaginative flag, compared with the CoA, which has a kind of samovar (dubbelnap), a swan, a wolfshead and a lion on it>
