During the jubilees of Queen Wilhelmina in 1938, when she was reigning
40 years, each municipality had a standard, witch had the following pattern:
a square flag with the colours of the provincial arms (except Friesland
and Noord-Brabant), in the canton (one quarter of the flag) the arms of
In Stramproy a standard was used with the colours of Limburg, and in the canton a square representation of the coat of arms: divided per pale, dexter red with a silver castle with three towers, sinister on silver St. Willibrordus.
In some municipalities the flag was forgotten, and when they found it many years later they thought it was a historical flag of the city, like in Stramproy where it was used as unofficial flag before 1988.
