Suwâld village (Suawoude)

Suwâld (Dutch: Suawoude) is a village with c. 600 inhabitants with a ferry for pedestrians. It is a long village along the road, west of the Wide Ee water. The yellow middle stripe symbolizes the sandy soil on which the village is built; on both sides there were marshlands, where peat was dug, colored black. The duck reminds of the duck cage which was once at the Âlde Miede, near the village.
