The current Netherlands flag was adopted in 1937, although variants have been in use since 1572. The red stripe was originally orange, and the colors were taken from the coat of arms of William of Orange, who led the fight for Dutch independence. The colors changed in the mid-17th century, possibly because red is more visible than orange.
This flag is dyed on silky, lustrous rayon and is hemmed and mounted to a black pole that includes a gold-painted spear. The 4 in. x 6 in. flag is mounted to a 10 in. pole, while the 8 in. x 12 in. flag is mounted to a 19 in. pole including 1 in. spear. Base not included.
