Warkum town (Workum) [former municipality]Workum is one of the 11 Frisian cities, in southwest Friesland; a small town dominated by a big Roman Catholic church. It was an old harbor, which was never as important as Stavoren. Since 1984 it is part of the municipality of Nijefurd.
The flag was adopted 6 June 1957. It first appeared on the flagchart of Hesman (1708); the colors were derived from the municipal CoA.
