adopted 28 Aug 1986
The first municipal flag was: quartered diagonally; hoist three equally
wide horizontal stripes RWR, with on the white stripe a
demi-facing bull in red contourcolors; top green; fly Orange-White-Orange with a foal on white in red contour-colors; bottom
The basic colors are of the town of Edam (red-green) and of the village of Volendam (orange-black), ordered according to the traditional models of the Holland gueuzes. For some intricate reasons the two local emblems (the Edammer bull, and the Volendammer (canting) foal were designed in contours.
