Lansingerland municipality

Lansingerland is a new municipality in Zuid-Holland, formed 1 January 2007 by the merger of the former municipalities of Bergschenhoek, Berkel en Rodenrijs and Bleiswijk. (between Delft and Gouda, say cheese)

Arms: Granted 30 August 2007
Parti per fess vert I or an 8-pointed mullet gules; II argent a lozenge gules; surmounted with a crown or of 8 pearls.
The name "Lansingerland" refers to a "landscheiding" or "lansing" (land separation), which since days of old formed the border between the "hoogheemraadschappen" (polderboards) of Delfland and Schieland. This separation runs across the new municipality and can still be seen as a dike. That is symbolized in the green bar in the arms.
The golden and silver fields symbolize the brooks Leede and Rotte.
The star is derived from the arms of  the old arms of Berkel en Rodenrijs and Bergschenhoek; the red lozenge is from the first, most important quarter of Bleiswijk.

The flag was adopted 22 November 2007, and obviously derived from the arms.
