Oud-Alblas former municipality
Oud-Alblas is a former municipality in Zuid-Holland province, since 1986
part of Graafstroom municipality, a few km north of Papendrecht.
Flag: green with a yellow hoist-triangle, reaching 2/3 flaglength;
the triangle charged with five black lozenges placed into the direction
of flaglength; 3 lozenges in a vertical row at 1/6 flaglength, and 2 in
a vertical row at 11/30 flaglength.
adopted 18 Apr 1977; design: the municipality itself.
Green is for "water", and thus symbolizes the small Alblas-river. The
triangle and lozenges represent the municipal arms.

1500 inhabitants, mostly working in neighbouring Alblasserdam.
