Since 1990, the Vaandeldrager has stood proudly on the kiosk at the Heuvel in Lieshout. If you drive from Bavaria via Ribbiusstraat to the Heuvel, you can see the Vaandeldrager from afar. The bronze statue stands on a hardstone pedestal. On the pedestal is the old logo of the Rabobank and the date 18-05-1990. On 18 May 1990 Toon Vermeltfoort took his leave as director of the Rabobank in Lieshout and the statue was a farewell gift from the Rabobank. Vermeltfoort has devoted himself enormously to works of art in public spaces in Lieshout and Mariahout. He ensured that money was made available and that works of art were given a proper place in these villages. He also donated, among other things, the altar for the chapel of the Saint Servatius guild on Ginderdoor. The sculpture was made by the artist Niek van Leest, who is particularly well-known in Brabant. Van Leest (1930-2012) was a painter and furniture designer before making the switch to sculpture. There are various works by him and his son Pier in Laarbeek.
