In view of the mysterious origin of the unicorn in the flag of Menaldumadeel (Fryslân) it might be a good idea to have a look in Ee (Dongeradeel). Flag and CoA of that village contain a unicorn. Perhaps there is a connection somewhere."

On my way from Harlingen to Eagum last saturday, I came to Dronrijp, in Menaldumadeel, where apart from a lot of Frisian wimpels one wimpel was flying that I believe must have been the municipal wimpel of Menaldumadeel:
A square blue hoist charged with a white lying unicorn with head turned, details in blue; two vertical equally wide stripes of blue and white.
The unicorn comes from the flag of Menaldumadeel; for the municipality wimpels blue and white stripes were chosen for the municipalities of Westergo.
