The Netherlands-Waalsdorpervlakte
The Waalsdorpervlakte is an open place in the dune area "Meijendel" (near The Hague), where over 250 members of the Dutch resistance were killed by the Germans during World War II. It is also the site of top Nazi collaborator Anton Mussert's execution in 1946, a year after his arrest in The Hague on 7 May 1945. It is regarded one of the main locations where on 4 May "Remembrance of the Dead", a yearly commemoration of victims of World War II and other victims of war, is held.
The flag is made of painted pinecones.

De tekst op de gedenksteen luidt:
'HIER BRACHTEN VELE LANDGENOTEN HET OFFER VAN HUN LEVEN VOOR UW VRIJHEID. BETREED DEZE PLAATS MET GEPASTE EERBIED.'
