Shipmate Flagchart : http://www.flagchart.net
Flag: Yellow with a blue diagonal from hoist-top to fly-bottom of 1/3 flagheight;
the diagonal charged with the pen from the arms.
The homepage of the tiny village of Foudgum in the municipality of
Dongeradeel is at: http://www.nofriesland.nl/foudgum/
It contains the flag and Coat of Arms, which have been inspired by the 19th
century writer François Haverschmidt (AKA Piet Paaltjens), who was
the village vicar (dominee) 1859-1862, hence the pen. The blue diagonal
bar is for the road from Dokkum to Holwerd (and Ameland), which cuts the
village in two.

penholder with balance spring nib of the same, the holder pointing upwards;
