Eemsmond is in northeast Groningen (meaning: mouth of the river Eems (Dutch) or Ems (German).

It can be found too at

with a description: 'Green for the arable land, yellow for the corn-fields (wheat), and blue for the sea from which the land was gained.

The mermaid was copied from the municipal coat of arms.' The CoA is present too at that site, and the mermaid has been  derived from the old CoA of the old municipality of Uithuizen, where it was used in the 17th century. The mermaid probably refers to the presence of seals along the coast.
