Foudgum village

Flag: Yellow with a blue diagonal from hoist-top to fly-bottom of 1/3 flagheight; the diagonal charged with the pen from the arms.
The homepage of the tiny village of Foudgum in the municipality of Dongeradeel is at:
It contains the flag and Coat of Arms, which have been inspired by the 19th century writer François Haverschmidt (AKA Piet Paaltjens), who was the village vicar (dominee) 1859-1862, hence the pen. The blue diagonal bar is for the road from Dokkum to Holwerd (and Ameland), which cuts the village in two.
