Fly Your Flag

Netherlands NL-3037447 received 07-07-2015

Notes: As you can probably guess by where the sender of this card lives, this is the flag of the Netherlands.  Variations of it have been used since 1572, making it the oldest tricolor national flag still in use.  It is very similar to the flag of Luxembourg, but the blue on the Luxembourg flag is a lighter shade.  The Netherlands flag may also be confused with the flag of France, which has the same colored stripes, but vertically instead of horizontally.
