Hengelo-Slangenbeek ward

[Hengelo-Slangenbeek] Shipmate Flagchart :
adopted ?

This is the flag of the ward of Slangenbeek in Hengelo, Overijssel, from this website.
"Slangenbeek" = snakebrook, the serpentine on the flag evidently represents a snake. The symbology of the ball and the tower are unknown to me. The ward is in the northeastern part of Hengelo-city.

Anything to do with the 1939 NY World's Fair???

Nice to see the Trylon and the Perisphere still gainfully employed after 65 years, even if it is a bit far from their original home...  ;-)  - see this webpage.
