The presentation of the old Hanseatic town of Hasselt during the 23rd International Hanseatic meeting in Frankfurt/Oder (Germany) and Slubice (Poland) included a flag which was different from the flag as presented by Shipmate:
1. The top stripe is orange.
2. The checquy field is shifted towards the hoist, and the fields have become square.

Please check the Zwartewaterland municipal website.
The offical flag has the cross centred. The description says the top bar is yellow. On Shipmate we use standard yellow. Your drawing looks more like the logo of Zwartewaterland.
