Across the country, provinces, councils and water authorities follow the formal flag protocol of flying the Dutch flag at full mast, without pennant. Civilians, businesses and organisations may use the protocol as a guide, but this is not compulsory.
The 15 August Commemoration Foundation receives financial support from the VFonds and the Ministry of Public Health, Well-being and Sport (VWS). The Foundation could also put your support to good use! Currently the Foundation has around 1,600 donors.
