This is the Coat of Arms!

Something interesting about the people of the Netherlands is that the Dutch are the tallest in the world with an average height of 6 ft. 1/17 in. for men and 5 ft. 6 in. for women. Some believe its the combined result of DNA and dairy.

One tradition is that for 4 evenings in a row during May and June since 1909, thousands of Dutch school children and their parents walk 5 or 10 km at a time through streets in huge processions called the avondvierdaagse, or 'evening four-day marches' while slurping on half-cut lemons and sweets on strings around their necks.
