Krimpen aan de Lek flag

Krimpen aan de Lek is a former municipality in Zuid-Holland province, since 1985 part of Nederlek, a bit east of Rotterdam.
Flag: 5 stripes of white and blue, proportioned 2:1:1:1:2 and 3 black crescents (diameter 3/11 flagheight), placed at 5/18 and 13/18 of flaglength, with the center at 5/14 of flagheight, and at 1/2 flaglength with the center at 9/14 of flagheight
- however: the execution of the flag is to be done according to the image attached to the resolution.
adopted 29 Aug 1974 by municipal resolution.
Source: Vexilla Nostra IX (1974): 123.

The image is a waving flag with apparently wavy stripes, proportioned 2:1:2:1:2 - making it virtually impossible to produce a flag according to that resolution... I have taken the drawing in VN as base for this gif - straight lines, black crescents pointing upwards on the blue stripes.
