Sumar village (Suameer)

Sumar (Dutch: Suameer) is a village with c. 1500 inhabitants. In the past here was heatherland, which was cultivated after 1900. In the 19th century the village was known because of a market held here twice a year, in spring and in autumn, where sheep and lambs were sold. The red color on the flag reminds of the heather (in Frisian heraldry the color violet is not used). Green is for the meadows at present around the village.
