Re: A question of low country geography

Ah, the Baarle-Hertog question .....

In fact, there isn't just one enclave in this tiny area. There are lots of them here. There are Dutch enclaves in Belgian enclaves which are themselves in the Dutch territory. Consider that there are two main enclaves: Baarle-Hertog and Baarle-Nassau, of Belgium and Netherlands, respectively. There are very tiny enclaves -- just the place to put a flag.

Because some enclaves are very tiny (there are boundries across houses!) they found a way to identify where the Belgian and Dutch parts are. Next to every front door there is painted a little.... (yes).... flag! If the front door is on Belgian territory the flag is a Belgian tricolour, and if the front door is on Dutch territory the flag is the Dutch tricolour.

Try hopping ....
