Charlois [sub-municipality]

Charlois was a separate municipality until 1895, when it merged with Rotterdam. It is in southern Rotterdam, on the island of IJsselmonde. Here is the port of Waalhaven. Charlois was a possession of Charles the Bold of Burgundy, when he was a Crownprince and had the title of Count of Charollois, that is Charollois near Le Creusot in France.

Flag: seven fly-diagonal stripes of white and blue. At the sub-municipal seat I saw three such flags with the inescutcheon of the coat of arms in the center.
