The flag of Drenthe

The flag of Drenthe was adopted on February 19, 1947.

The colours of the flag (red and white) are the traditional Saxon colours and also those of the Archbishop of Utrecht by whom Drenthe was governed in the past.

The six stars represent the six ancient regions (dingspil) and the castle is a reference to the city Coevorden from where the province has been governed for a long time.
