Flagsday aka National Herring Day

Saturday June 13th 2015 is exactly 75 years after the first “flagsday”in Scheveningen. A special day that is also the start of the herring season.

A fixed element of flagsday is the so-called “admiraal varen”; all ships pass the ship of the admiral and salute him. He will return this salute by raising the flag and firing the canon.

Why Project Made in Holland Flagsday 2015?

We have created a special program for Flagsday; combining admiraalvaren, enjoying a enervating trip on the North Sea, followed by some herring with Champagne upon your return.
