Adopted 2 Oct 1990; design: Stichting Banistiek en Heraldiek
The municipal flag of the former municipality of Montfort was designed
by the Stichting Banistiek en Heraldiek. It tried to sell that idea to
the municipality in 1988, but they were not interested. While municipal
reorganizations were on their way the municipal council adopted it on 2
Oct 1990. On the last day of Montfort's independence the flag was hoisted
for the first time. Later on it was used as village flag.
The flag is a complete derivation of the arms of the municipality of Montfort. The colors of the arms are or and azure (yellow and blue). The hoisttriangle symbolizes a mountain, which is also present on the arms.

Description: : "azure a castle of two towers with two crosses, all or,
standing on a mountain or hill of the same."
This is evidently canting: a "fort" (castle) on a "mont" (mountain)
