adopted 2 Jun 1954
Millingen aan de Rijn municipality
Number of inhabitants (1 Jan 2003): 5.910; area: 10,35 km². Settlements:
Millingen aan de Rijn (seat).
Millingen is c. 30 km east of Nijmegen. Here the Rhine is split into
the Waal en the Rhine (here called 'Pannerdens kanaal'). Its name might
be derived from 'milliarium' (milepole) on the Roman military road.
The flag is another fine example of Dutch 'banenvlaggen' (horizontally
striped flags), derived from the colors of the 4 quarters of the Coat of Arms, reminding
of 4 important families of the region.
