Wijdemeren municipality

Population (1 Jan 2004): 23.346; area: 77,00 km²; settlements: 's-Graveland (seat), Ankeveen, Boomhoek, Breukeleveen, Kortenhoef, Muyeveld, Nederhorst den Berg, Nieuw-Loosdrecht, Oud-Loosdrecht.
On 1 Jan 2002  the former municipalities of ’s-Graveland, Nederhorst den Berg and Loosdrecht merged to form the new municipality of Wijdemeren.
On 4 Oct 2003 the Mayor, mr. Bijl, inaugurated the new logo, which will adorn all publications of Wijdemeren. It was designed by T. Burgerdijk of ACI Ontwerpstudio in Amsterdam. He was inspired by the beautiful landscape of Wijdemeren, mainly the Loosdrechtse Plassen. The name "Wijdemeren" was executed in blue.  With a wink to the French impressionist Monet the designer chose a green painter's pallette to symbolize the leaves of a waterlily. There are three pallettes for the three former municipalities.
At present the municipality of Wijdemeren does not have a Coat of Arms.
