I can't find what flag is between the Netherlands and Germany on this worldmap: http://media.militaryphotos.net/photos/albums/album195/adl.jpg

excerpt of map

It is yellow with a (light) blue cross. There seems to be some red spots on it but those might be part of the face instead of the flag.

I have searched 3 flag searching websites, and checked all province flags from the Netherlands and Germany without success. The closest I got was the dutch province Limburg but that is no cross.

Does anyone know what it might be?

I'm sorry if this question is not suited for this stackexchange. I'm hoping that the collective knowledge might be able to help me because i'm stuck and very curious to what it is.

BTW, that map is super-offensive. It seems to have been designed to insult everyone. I think it's also supposed to be funny. –  Kate Gregory Jul 31 '11 at 20:45
    
I'm glad you got your answer but I am going to close this now as having virtually nothing to do with Travel. –  Robert Cartaino Aug 2 '11 at 5:13

Maybe the proposed interfrisian flag? Though the color is not quite correct and it is geographically too far in the south. de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groep_fan_Auwerk –  starblue Aug 2 '11 at 8:10
    
Robert, yes I understand, I was afraid it was too far from the subject. @starblue that really matches the red spots, but then the white cross is missing. Maybe there are different versions of the flag or the artist got it wrong. The locations on the map aren't precise anyway so it could be the answer as well. –  Niels Aug 2 '11 at 12:26

Frisian is also likely because they are one of the better known regional people, like Bavarians who are also on the map. –  starblue Aug 2 '11 at 18:27

From Category:Blue and yellow flags and Category: Nordic Cross Flags on Wikipedia I found only three flags that were a blue cross on yellow.

Neither of those locations are between Germany and the Netherlands though.

There is also a flag of blue on yellow that is a variant of the Netherlands flag:

variant flag

It has some red stuff too that could be the red flecks in your picture.

Thanks a lot for the effort! I guess that last one, the dutch royal flag, is the most likely one. Why exactly it is put there I don't know. Maybe because the Dutch royal family has roots in Germany? Anyway thanks, now I can sleep peacefully :) –  Niels Jul 31 '11 at 20:32
