Wanneperveen became part of Brederwiede in a merger in 1973, and Steenwijkerwold was split up among all three former municipalities. The municipality was renamed on 1 Jan 2003 to Steenwijkerland.
The municipality of Steenwijkerland in the beautiful northwestern corner of the province, hemmed in by Fryslân, Drenthe and Flevoland, adopted on 18 Feb 2003 a new municipal flag: the municipal logo on a white field; how it looks when there's no wind: see this webpage. No new Coat of Arms adopted yet.
