The blue chief symbolizes the Wadden-area. The clover refers to the
penetrating sea being repelled by land. Clover was also one of the elements
of the arms of former polderboard 'Tusken Waed en Ie'. In the chief
there is also a yellow six-pointed star, which may be interpreted as the
position of the Polderboard, and also as reference to the seat of the board:
the village of Stiens (in Leeuwarderadeel).
The two rings with crosses are a compromise of the comparable elements from the arms of both former polderboards.

The mill has been taken from the polderboard arms and is supposed to represent the potato-growth in this region in the North of Fryslân. The board was abolished in 1997 and became part of the new polderboard De Waadkant.
