Ee village (Ie)

Flag: blue, with a white wavy fiagonal stripe from fly-top to hoist-bottom of 1/3 flagheight; in hoist-top in blue a turned erased unicorn's head.
Ee (Frisian: Ie) is a village with c. 1000 inhabitants, 8 km east of Dokkum. The diagonal on the flag is typical of the former Oostdongeradeel villages; however the wavy bar represents the small stream 'Súder Ie' which flows from the north through the village into the 'Dokkumer Djip' (not to be confused with the 'Dokkumer Ee', which flows from Leeuwarden to Dokkum.) The unicorn is from the Coat of Arms of the Humalda-family. Blue and white have been derived from the old municipality Coat of Arms (and flag)

In view of the mysterious origin of the unicorn in the flag of Menaldumadeel (Fryslân) it might be a good idea to have a look in Ee (Dongeradeel). Flag and Coat of Arms of that village contain a unicorn. Perhaps there is a connection somewhere."
