Zaltbommel was already known in 850 AD as 'Bomela'; named Zaltbommel because of the trade in salt and to be distinguished from Maasbommel (see Appeltern). City rights in 1229, one of the most beautiful cities of Gelderland. Birthplace of the Philips brothers, who started the radio company.

The first unofficial flag was horizontal BW, derived from the CoA, according to Sierksma, Nederlands Vlaggenboek, 1962. - And here goes the Assen flag again, now as <nl-ge_za.gif>

The new flag is the CoA. The swords may be from the old iron-eater Maarten van Rossum, who was born here and made the East of the Netherlands rather unsafe in the early 16th century. <nl-ge-zb.gif>

In 1999 Zaltbommel was enriched by the municipality of Brakel and Kerkwijk. It is not (yet) known what the flag of the new municipality will be.
