Holland or The Netherlands..?

I remember being sent this by one of my Dutch friends a couple of years ago. Even now I still think its a little confusing but it does clarify some key points and some fun facts I certainly didn’t know before:

  • The Kingdom of the Netherlands is made up of 12 provence. Each have their own flag.
  • People who live in North or South Holland are called Hollanders but everyone is Dutch and they all speak Dutch,
  • The Kingdom of the Netherlands is officially made up of 6 Caribbean Islands, 4 countries, 12 provinces, 2 Hollands, 2 Netherlands, 1 Kingdom and they all speak Dutch.

 

 

Does that clear things up?
