Description of the burgee

The burgee of the VVW is a triangular yellow flag with a black cross voided throughout and the VVW emblem in canton. Possibly the stylized bird emblem on the flag is the blauwvoet, symbolic of Flemish aspirations since the XIXth century.

The image shown above, as well as the other images on this page, was drawn after the VVW website (flag etiquette page).
