Dinxperlo is in southeast Gelderland and its main village has a twin in Germany (Suderwick); it used to be a delight for enclavophiles. The flag is obviously derived from the Coat of Arms, which refers to the possible origin of the name (Dinxperlo > Dingserlo): a 'ding' was the place where justice was administered, lo: wood, forest.
