    The Lion of Namur is actually the flag of Flanders with a red line through it. Lions are for the germanic part (Flanders). Gallic roosters are for the french speaking part of belgium (wallonia). Just a minor mistake , I'm really loving your vids btw!

    Thanks! That was super informative!
    I don't know if I ever thought much about the Netherlands or Holland or Denmark a lot before, and as you stated have mostly used them wrongly and interchangeably.
    I found out today that my great grandmother was Dutch (but in the US, no idea where that line goes back to), and realized I knew absolutely nothing about it!

    in het begin werd het vkn opgericht als bufferstaat om Frankrijk binnen zijn grenzen te houden. de koning van het vkn wou godsdienstvrijheid. in het zuiden( België) vond men dat niet ok. en na een paar jaar van discussies werden we gescheiden. nu is bijna iedereen atheïst en konden we even goed bijeen gebleven zijn 😂

      Uit “The Armageddon Script” van Peter Lemesurier,
      1984 Uitgeverij Elsevier-vertaling van Rijswijk.
      -de republiek zal worden uitgeroepen in België,Nederland en Groot-Britannnie.
      Noord Ierland zal aan Ierland worden overgedragen en Schotland zal tenslotte onafhankelijk worden.
      Gibraltar zal in handen worden gegeven aan Spanje en de Kanaaleilanden zullen uiteindelijk worden overgedragen aan Frankrijk.
      In het Midden Oosten zal Israel ,na een plotselinge verandering van politieke eensgezindheid, te lijden hebben onder hardnekkige oorlogen en tenslotte niet meer dan een ministaatje worden, terwijl de joden opnieuw over de wereld verstrooid zullen worden.
      Pas als de Palestijnen naar hun geboorteland mogen terugkeren zal er vrede in het gebied komen.
      Dus jongens en meisjes, kibbel gerust verder, ik denk, dat wij voor grote veranderingen staan, waar wij als eenling niets, maar dan ook niets aan kunnen doen.
      Kennelijk vecht May momenteel voor het behoud van Groot Britannie, mogelijk heeft zij ook kennis van het "Armageddon Script”.


      Nostradamus kwatrijn X-52

      Au lieu d’Anvers ou la
      crappe charient
      Jeune vieillesse consorte

      Op de plaats waar de Leie en de Schelde samengaan (Gent)
      zullen de bruiloften van weleer zijn,
      lang geleden gemodelleerd (reeds 2x verbonden)
      Op de plaats van Antwerpen,
      waar het tuig aanspoelt,
      zullen gelijkgezinden het begin van een nieuwe tijd inzetten.

    The "Golden Lion"-symbology, common in The Lowlands, Britain and Scandinavia, is a symbol of The Tribe of Pharisiim(the Pharisees), which were dispelled from old Israel. Yet, it's way back, so very few, in these countries have any true jewish-heritage to speak of today -it would be a case like Sen. Warren's native-Heritage, spoken of in the US press, this last week, ie."watered-out", to the point of no recognition.

      Holt means hout. I suppose long time ago people in Holland used to say holt, as Low-Saxonspeaking people in the north-eastern part of the Netherlands and in Northern Germany still do.

    5:40 That's not the actual Belgian Flag.
    Belgium is one of the only nations that not uses their flag as written in the constitution.
    They are actually horizontal red, yellow and black on the bottom.,.
    "De Belgische Natie kiest als kleuren rood, geel en zwart,
    en als rijkswapen de Belgische Leeuw met de kenspreuk EENDRACHT MAAKT MACHT."
    It was originally changes to look more French, by the French speaking minority,
    but never actually changed in the constitution.,.
    5:55 Lion.,. hmmm, might be because of Leo Belgicus?
    Leo Belgicus used to be made up out of Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and a part from France.,.
    Hmmm, interesting, I never actually say "holanders", mostly I call them keeskoppen, or cheeseheads in English.,. xD
    However, that's mostly as a joke, like you guys tend to call all Belgians dumb.,.

    Thanks for the explanaitions; very interesting! You said that Dutch is the English word for the language. What do the Dutch call their own language in the Netherlands? It's interesting how the name actually describes the topograpy. Another country with a discriptive name like this that comes to mind is Ukraine, which I understand means the lands in between (in other words the lands in between Russia and the West).

      Nederlands = Dutch name for Dutch language. If you literally translate it in english it would be 'Netherlandish' I think.

    The Southern Netherlands is what became Belgium. It was created by Spain when they conquered half of the Netherlands, kept it separate from the Dutch Republic for so long that it gained it's own identity and borders.

    • EvilResident
      EvilResident 6 months ago +1

      You're wrong. Spain never conquered it. It became Spanish through an inheritance. And the Dutch separated themselves off the Habsburg- or Spanish Netherlands as the Dutch Republic.

    Grim Reaper 11 months ago

    Are you sure the Netherlands are called Netherlands because they are so flat and not because they are placed at the lowest (meaning stream downwards) part of the Rhein? For a long part of history the Netherlands have been part of the Reich (holy (because holy) roman (because we concoured rome) empire (because it never was an empire)) and within the Reich everything north was called "Nieder-" because all the major streams (except for the Donau) run north. Niedersachsen is, for example not called Niedersachsen, because it is flat, but because it is up the rhine. Even the Romans called the northern parts "germania inferior" and the southern "germania supperior". As a German from southern Germany i would love to hear, that we are supperior, but that is not what is meant.

    Good video. Good to know. Can you explain why the Dutch are called the Dutch because that doesn’t naturally come from either the Netherlands name or the Holland one? Also, you should do a Spanish version of this video since the Netherlands is practically called Holanda by the whole Spanish speaking world even though there’s an official name in Spanish called “Los Paises Bajos”. That would be cool to see.
