National Remembrance Day

National remembrance day 

On the 4th of May is our National Remembrance Day here in the Netherlands. The Dutch flag is at half-mast and at 20:00, there will be a two minute silence for those who have fallen during World War II and wars thereafter. There are multiple ceremonies all around The Netherlands. Most well known one will be on the Dam in Amsterdam, where our King and Queen will be present to pay their respects. Everything will be publicly showcased by Dutch news channels and multiple locations will keep to the 2 minute silence at 20:00 in the evening.
