Number of inhabitants: 21.610; area: 85,08 km². Settlements: Brummen
(seat), Eerbeek, Empe, Hall, Leuvenheim, Oeken, Tonden, Voorstonden.
Brummen is some 30 km northeast of Arnhem.
The flag (adopted 21 Apr 1970) is derived from the municipal Coat of Arms. The
twig in the lion's paw is for 'brummels', blackberries in the local
dialect, which have undergone a (failed) heraldic operation.
