adopted 25 Feb 1992
Heythuysen is a former municipality in Limburg province, northwest of
Roermond on the other bank of the Maas. In 1991 it merged into the new
municipality with the same name.
Flag: blue, with in top hoist a yellow square canton charged with three red horns, placed 2,1; in a fly-diagonal line three yellow roses on blue. Adopted 8 Nov 1976 by municipal resolution.
The horns are from the county of Horn, to which Heythuysen belonged until the end of the 17th century.
Nickname: "Wind" - In Heythuysen (aka "Petit Paris") people thought highly of themselves - but it was much ado about wind, really!
