The "Heraldry of the World"
website shows the arms of Ouwekerk as "Per pale serrated sable and
argent a chief or".
The former arms of Duiveland are similar, but with three blue diamonds added in the chief. The matching flag is a banner of the arms orthogonally rotated. We may expect the Ouwerkerk flag to follow the same pattern.

I was approached and proposed a BoA: two stripes 1:3; the top yellow;
bottom over the ventral 1/3 flaglength like two vertical stripes indented
of black and white with three black dents and one half black dent issuing
from the dividing line.
The old arms of Ouwerkerk occurred with dents touching the shield-edge and also not-touching. The last form was confirmed in 1817. It is so unique that it was obvious to opt for a BoA. Like Sirjansland.
