It's a simple flag: hoistdiagonally divided brightblue over white; on
white at the hoist the borough's logo (three red saltires [representing
Amsterdam] placed on top of each other above a brightblue triskellion-like
item); in bottom center small letters "Gemeente Amsterdam" above slightly
larger letters "Stadsdeel Zeeburg", all red.
[text similar to the letters on the flag of Geuzenveld-Slotermeer].
Zeeburg is a Western city-borough of Amsterdam; I used to be a volunteer
in a youth center, in charge of the bar - never knew why I wasn't fired
being one of the bar's best customers :-) Instead, with typical Amsterdam
logic, the center was closed. Zeeburg is one of fifteen neigbourhoods in
Amsterdam. Zeeburg comprises the Indische Buurt, the Oostelijk Havengebied,
the Zeeburgereiland and IJburg.
[IJburg will be the newest Amsterdam borough, having been voted upon by referendum (to everybody's surprise the Amsterdammers voted "YES")]
