A brilliant design!
Viktor Lomantsov, 3 Nov 2000
Description: "Per pale: I. in red a half Nesser owl-board of silver
issuing from the fess, namely an issuing seahorse with between the mouth
and the breast a turned sitting bird touching both and a white tulip placed
in the opened back diagonally right; in blue three golden stemmed and leaved
wheat ears, placed two and one".
The Nesser "ûleboerd" (owl-board) is very rare in Fryslân, and has been placed in the (heraldic) right of the shield in the colors of the old shire of Oostergo. In the heraldic right part three wheat ears have been placed in the color of the municipal arms, in the same proportions as the stars in the municipal arms. The ears symbolize the agriculture in the environment.
