Marcel van Westerhoven wrote me that the municipality of Montfort in Limburg province had a flag, before the merger in Ambt Montfort. According to Marcel that flag is now used as town-flag.
In DerkWillem Visser's "Gemeentevlaggen en wapens Koninkrijk der Nederlanden", 2001 is the old municipal flag of Montfort: "a yellow flag with a blue hoist-triangle reaching to flagcenter, charged with a yellow castle with two towers. Adopted 2 Oct 1990 by municipal resolution".

Montfort CoA

[Montfort CoA] by Jarig Bakker, 29 Oct 2004, after image in the Koffie Hag Album
Granted by Royal resolution 5 Jul 1887.

Description: : "azure a castle of two towers with two crosses, all or, standing on a mountain or hill of the same."
This is evidently canting: a "fort" (castle) on a "mont" (mountain)
