Municipal flag

Arcen en Velden is a municipality on an island in the Maas river in north Limburg. Its brassband is one of the finest in the Netherlands and it is regarded as one of the nicest places in our country. Not long ago it was deemed proper to spell it 'Arsen', but without giving notice someone ordered it to be spelled 'Arcen' again. <it is near the German border, where Arsen means 'Arsenicum'..>

The castle on the flag stands for 'arcen' as in 'Arc de triomphe', a gate or castle. I guess the oakleaf stands for the bushy surroundings.
