Oostrum village (Eastrum)Flag description: Yellow with a green garuly diagonal stripe from hoist-bottom to fly-top, and in hoist top a red lying brick.
Explanation: the garuly stripe is derived from the stump on the Mellema family CoA. The diagonal division refers to Oostdongeradeel's CoA, and the brick to the old brick-factory.
Oostrum (Frisian: Eastrum) is a village with (1-1-1999) 189 inhabitants at 3 km east of Dokkum. It used to be important because of the brick-factory ('it Stienfek') and the ZPC-building for storing potatoes (mainly). Both are now used for yachting purposes.
