Nunspeet municipality

Number of inhabitants (1 Jan 2003): 26.469; area: 129,63 km². Settlements: Nunspeet (seat), Elspeet, Hulshorst, Vierhouten.
Nunspeet is near the Veluwemeer in nortwest Gelderland. It was a hunting ground until the 16th century, and the municipality is still rather densely forested. The municipality was formed after separation from Ermelo in 1970.

The flag, adopted 30 March 1972, is adapted from the CoA. Yellow is for sand-drift, black for the soil the houses are built on. The lozenge field is a barrow, symbol for agriculture. The Veluwe, of which Nunspeet forms a part, is the only region in the Netherlands, where deer can be found in the wild.
