Shipmate Flagchart : http://www.shipmate.nl/flags.htm
Vorden is c. 10 km southeast of Zutphen. It has 8 castles and is the place where the famous Dutch poet A. C. W. Staring lived and died.
The flag is a nice adaptation of the municipal CoA; the waves stand for the water of the 'vorde' (ford) in the Vordense beek. The checky part is derived from CoA of the family Vorden.
