Municipal flag

Warnsveld is just east of Zutphen, an agricultural municipality. In how far this name is related to the name of the Frisian village of Warns is not known; both names appeared for the first time in the beginning of the 12th century. <let alone the Czechian town of Warnsdorf>

The (unofficial) old flag was horizontally green - yellow, at the hoist a broad (Madagascar style) white bar with the municipal CoA. (According to Sierksma: Nederlands vlaggenboek, 1962.) That CoA is in Sierksma's 'Gemeentewapens van Nederland', 1968, which depict a nude angel with a linecloth hiding his noble parts, probably the god Warns (Wodan?).

My knowledge about the WV flag with the yellow wheel is nil.
