Hulsberg former municipality

Hulsberg is a former municipality in Limburg province, since 1982 part of the new municipality of Nuth, central south Limburg.
Flag: five stripes white - red - yellow - red - white, proportioned 4:2:1:2:4, and a yellow hoist-triangle charged with a standing green holly-leaf of 3/5 flagheight; at the base of the leaf three red berries, against the stem.
adopted 21 Mar 1968 by municipal resolution.

Arms: per pale; I argent a double-tailed lion gules, crowned and armed or; II or a mountain issueing from base vert sommé with a holly-branch of natural color; behind the shield St. Clemens, pope and martyr.
Granted 19 Dec 1931 by Royal Resolution
I have left St. Clemens out - he's beyond my skills

Hulsberg can be read as "hulst" = holly + "berg" = mountain, both present on the arms, and (in a way) on the flag.
The lion is the lion of Valkenburg, because Hulsberg used to be in the jurisdiction of the court of aldermen of Valkenburg.
Hulsberg has some regional fame because "the TV-transmittor of Hulsberg is out of the air." best translated in Mexican: "momentito".
