Shipmate Flagchart : http://www.shipmate.nl/flags.htm
Echt is in middle Limburg, between Roermond and Sittard. There was brick- and tile-manufacturing, and of course asparagus was grown here.
The flag is derived from the CoA, where there are 12 crosses for the 12 villages (parishes) of the municipality.
