May 4

Commemorative-wreathes-with-dutch-colours-at-a-national-monument-during-Remembrance-Day-in-the-Netherlands

Freedom is a huge part of the Dutch culture and this day pays a tribute to all those who gave their lives for it. On Dodenherdenking (Remembrance Day), a royal memorium is presented by the king and the queen at the Dam square. Another important tradition is holding a two-minute silence to commemorate the victims of war. Celebrations of freedom continue into the next day with the lighting of the ā€œliberation flameā€ at midnight. This marks the start of the more jovial Bevrijdingsdag (Liberation Day).
