It has been three years since Flag Day could be celebrated with full dedication. On Saturday 18 In June, Scheveningen was again completely dominated by herring during Flag Day. The event this year celebrated her 62 anniversary.

In the harbor of Scheveningen there was plenty to do from early in the morning: performances, old crafts, old Dutch children’s games, admiral sailing and old costumes. Interested parties could also take a look aboard various ships. There was a lot of interest in a visit to the Noordster, a herring logger from 1250.

But the main focus on Flag Day is of course the herring: the Hollandse Nieuwe! A lot of herrings with onions were eaten in the Scheveningen harbor. People from far and wide had come to Scheveningen on Saturday to celebrate Flag Day. It was a perfect, sun-drenched day with a cool breeze for the necessary refreshment. Despite the earlier predictions, the expected crowds were not too bad.
