Krimpen aan den IJsselNumber of inhabitants (1 Jan 2003): 29.100; area: 8,93 km². Settlements: Krimpen aan den IJssel (seat).
The official flag of the municipality of Krimpen aan den IJssel has been adopted by the municipal council on 5 Apr 2001.
The colors have partly been taken from the municipal arms (white and black), and the national colors of the Netherlands have been added. The white lines in the flag symbolize the big rivers running through Krimpen, and converging at the point of the Stormpolder. For recognizability the CoA has been placed over the two black triangles. The application of the colors of the Dutch tricolor accentuates Krimpen aan den IJssel's position in The Kingdom of The Netherlands.
