Netherlands ISD Calling code is +31
The Dutch flag is composed of a red-white-blue tricolor and it is also known as “The Prince’s Flag”. Records about the prince William of Orange´s flag appeared already in 1572, when William led the resistance against the Spanish domination, however the flag was originally orange, white and blue. Later, the orange stripe was replaced by a red one so that it was better visible on the seas. Dutch tricolor is the oldest national tricolor flag, and it served as an inspiration for the French and Russian tricolor. As the Russian flag later influenced many Slavic flags, the Dutch tricolor indirectly affected these flags as well. The Dutch flag is considered to be one of the oldest flags which retained its design even over times of various coups.
At the head of the state sits the country’s constitutional monarchy, whose palaces dominate many of the larger cities, including The Hague and the capital city, Amsterdam. The latter, renowned for its step-gabled houses, ubiquitous bikes, seedy red light district and hazy coffeeshops, is bisected by a UNESCO-listed network of waterways, many of which are spanned by beautiful, latticed bridges.
