Warstiens village

Warstiens, village in Boarnsterhim municipality, Fryslân; it used to be in the former municipality of Idaarderadeel; it has a church without any architectonical value, and (1958) 68 inhabitants; 1973: 29 (last count in Eagum was 26!)
Nickname: Einekuorren (duck cages), used and made in Warstiens.
Warstiens: coat of arms: in blue in silver fess, with on top and below a golden cloverleaf.
There was no indication for former arms, so the colors of the former municipality of Idaarderadeel were adopted; the fess divides the shield in two parts and represent the rivulet the Langdiel, which cuts the village in two. The clover is for the agricultural character of the community.
Flag: two stripes of blue and white, proportioned 2:1; in the blue stripe a yellow cloverleaf.
