Duiven municipality

Number of inhabitants (1 Jan 2003): 26.043; area: 35,15 km². Settlements: Duiven (seat), Groessen, Loo.
Duiven is just outside Arnhem, southeast of it. The names could be translated 'Pigeons' - Etymologically the name is related to 'dune' (Dutch: duin). An old folkloristic custom here was 'vendelzwaaien' - bannerthrowing. I don't know whether that has survived.
The flag was adopted 25 June 1954. The colors were derived from the municipal CoA.
