Description of the flag

The booklet Villes d'Art en Flandres (Art Cities in Flanders), published in 2001 by the Tourism Bureau of Flanders, shows on p. 10-11 a picture of the van Roosmalen House, captioned 'modern architecture by Bob van Reeth'.

The walls of the house are decorated with alternating horizontal black and white 'stripes' of stone, and there is a flag hoisted over the house roof. The flag 'reproduces' the wall pattern, being made of four horizontal black-white-black-white stripes. The flag shown on the picture is very damaged, so I have postulated a standard 2:3 proportion.

The flag can be seen online. The house was built in1987/88, for Will Van Roosmalen, designer and art collector, in Sint-Michielskai, near the Schelde river, in Antwerp.
The AWG ArchitektenWerkGroep (Architects Workgroup) got the Vth Charles Wilford-Award 1986 for projekts for this design.
