Wanneperveen is a former municipality in Overijssel province; the first flag was probably used on the occasion of Queen Wilhelmina's 50 years reigning jubilee.
In 1962 a new design was made: gironny of blue and red in seven pieces, where the red has a narrow white fringe.
This flag was designed before the municipal reorganization in Northwest Overijssel, but was never officially adopted. In 1973 Wanneperveen became part of the municipality of Brederwiede; that in its turn was made part of Steenwijk in 2001; in 2003 the new municipality of Steenwijkerland was created.

On the Wanneperveen homepage is the announcement that a new villageflag is on offer for € 25.
"The first flag consisted of three equallt wide horizontal stripes red - yellow - blue; in the canton over half of flagheight, a blue field with three yellow candlesticks, with white candles and red flames. In 1962 a new flag was designed (...) which was not officially adopted in 1970.
At the occasion of the 700 years of Wanneperveens existence the Feast Committee decided adopt a new "Wanneperveense vlag" based on the first flag, with the CoA taken out of the canton and replaced in the flagcenter.
I assume the Wanneperveense villageflag looks thus like this.
