Municipal flag

Aalten is a municipality in the 'Achterhoek', the southeastern part of Gelderland, due east of the provincial capital Arnhem.
The flag was adopted 17 October 1961 by the municipal council. The colors were derived from the municipal CoA; the green stands for the old lime-tree on the village square, which played in olden times an important part in legal proceedings.
