"Jason", Arnhem: officially the yellow disk has no red fimbriation.
Jeroen van Leeuwen, 23 Mar 2005

Jason was mythological hero who had to fetch the Golden Fleece from Colchis (at the Eastcoast of the Black Sea). That he did with his ship the "Argo". These elements return in the flag above; the colors blue/white are from the Arnhem flag/arms and often standardcolors for a watersportclub (water and air).
