Groesbeek is a municipality southeast of Nijmegen, on the German border. Many battles were fought in the environment of Groesbeek, among which one at the end of the WW2. Our former cycling PM (Dries) van Agt lives here.

The old flag (adopted 1962) had horizontally on top and bottom small BY and YB stripes, to accentuate the link with the province Gelderland.
Apparently this has now been established and the small stripes have gone. The nebuly bar is derived from the municipal Coat of Arms.
