Friesland Coat of Arms
Friesland is a province in the North of the Netherlands. Friesland originally included a larger area, of which parts are now in Noord Holland, Groningen and Germany. The Frisians formed an independent state. The German Emperor Frederik Barbarossa made Friesland a condominium between the Counts of Holland and the Bishops of Utrecht. The counts of Holland, however, failed to establish their power in the area. They only obtained West-Friesland, now part of the province of Noord Holland. At the same time the Counts of Gelre claimed the eastern part of the area. They also failed to establish their power for a longer period. To establish their claim they used arms with two lions on a field with silver coins. The lion was the lion of Gelre. It symbolized Gelre and Friesland. When the province finally became part of the Netherlands the arms were continued. In the 16th century the coins were replaced by 7 rectangles, representing the seven districts of (ancient) Friesland. The arms haven't changed since then[1].

  Friesland Flag
A flag with pompeblędden (lily leaves) was already mentioned in the "Gudrunlied" from the 11th century. This was also used by the Ommelanden. Since the middle of the 19th century the flag is used by the Fryske Biweging, and was accepted by the Deputed States (Provincial Legislature) in 1897. During the festivities of the 40th and 50th reigning jubilee of Queen Wilhelmina in 1938 and 1948 it was used by each municipality with the municipal arms in the canton. Finally it was officially adopted 9 July 1957 by the States of Friesland, nr. 12 Prov./besluit 20.
