Flag hoisted over the van Roosmalen House - Image by Ivan Sache, 14 April 2001
The booklet Villes d'Art en Flandres (Art Cities in
Flanders), published in 2001 by the Tourism Bureau of Flanders, shows
on p. 10-11 a picture of the van Roosmalen House, captioned "Modern
architecture by Bob van Reeth".
The walls of the house are decorated with alternating horizontal black and white "stripes" of stone, and there is a flag hoisted over the house roof. The flag "reproduces" the wall pattern, being made of four horizontal black-white-black-white stripes. The flag shown on the picture is very damaged, so I have postulated a standard 2:3 proportion.
