Notes: Meet Flipje, the mascot of the city of Tiel.  Tiel is located in central Netherlands, in an area that produces fruit such as apples, pears, plums and cherries.  The city was once  home to a large jam factory, and Flipje starred in the comic advertisements for the jam.  In addition to the statue, Flipje and his comic friends are also the subject of a museum in the city.
