Hillegersberg CoA

[Hillegersberg CoA] by Jarig Bakker, 21 Jul 2004, after Derkwillem Visser's "Gemeentevlaggen en wapens Koninkrijk der Nederlanden, 2001".

This is the giantess Hildegonda; in her apron she carried sand. On the site of Hillegersberg her apron tore, and sand out of it formed the mountain, on which the present settlement of Hillegersberg was built around the Hillegonda church. There was a castle here, Slot Hillegersberg, demolished by Jacoba van Beieren in 1426, of which a few remains still exist.
