SLR – See Love Remember

We ♥ Orange!

© See Love Remember, 2012

The European Football Championship – UEFA Euro 2012 – has started!

And that means: Orange Mania in the Netherlands.

To support the national team, the entire nation turns orange – the Dutch royal family comes from The House of Orange-Nassau, hence orange being the national colour.

Already weeks ago, whole houses got wrapped in orange plastic. Orange flags everywhere. And of course the best way to attend a match is wearing orange! Dutch are very nationalistic like that 😉

This street in The Hague has flags tied from roof-to-roof… along the entire street! Like an orange roof of waving banners. Hundreds of them.

I am definitely planning to join the crowds for watching a few matches. My orange t-shirt is already washed and ironed 😉

Hup, Holland, Hup!!
