Geremolen De Blauwe Wip - Hazerswoude-Dorp
This Geremolen was built in 1636 as a polder mill. Its function was to drain the Oost- and Westgeer polder. Another function was added later. From 1926 to 1959, the mill operated as a signal mill.
A signal mill was a polder mill whose miller was given the task by the higher water board to signal other millers to stop draining when the water level of the storage basin became too high. During the day this was done by hoisting a black-white-black flag on the sails and at night a bright lantern was used for this purpose.
