Shipmate Flagchart : http://www.shipmate.nl/flags.htm
Since 1625 a triband white-green-white has been in use, but has never been adopted officially. This flag is based on the old arms, which later became an escutcheon on a gold shield with a black eagle (first single-, later double-headed). (See quarter I and IV of the provincial flag based on the arms).
