Germany invaded the Netherlands during WWI by using the Moelingerweg, to the south of Mesch.

Elsewhere using the Dutch flag to mark neutral Dutch territory didn't always help, because some German soldiers believed it was the flag of France. A mistake repeated by Julian Absalon, in 2004 (Olympic Games, first flag he grabs; a few seconds later he got rid of the wrong one and grabs the French flag he was expecting).
